lyrics

swim for the shore
this is a shit storm
just let the winds blow
your fucking body afloat, watch the undertow
it's so hard to make
a ship that's built to brave
a seasoned climate change
stonewall waves of angst and just float away
don't mind the rocks scraping your knees
even if the skin begins to bleed
it'll only fill the water with the taste and scent of fathers
that didn't want to bother to teach their little birds to sing
the other birds are perched in trees
along jagged lines of shores and seas
but is there someone to comfort me
when I show my teeth and start to scream
"bring down the sharpest rains
with the force of a thousand men
let the winds tear through the barge along with the captain
you're still not far away
that shore won't make you safe
but you keep paddling
as if vows are all that you'll break
you're on your own"
