lyrics

I always taste the bitter sea,
Waiting for sinking ships to come for me,

I can't seem to stand on sifting sand,
Sands sifting towards an end,

No, I can't seem to stand on sifting sand,
So, I'll run back to where it all began.

Run into the sun,
The arms of a well-known stranger,
So run little one, broken little one,
Away from the world that breaks ya.

Little broken one,
Eyes set like the evening sun,
They're going down,
We're going down.

Lonely little one,
The mad sailor on the run,
On solid grounds,
We're drowning now

At the end of our day,
are we on our way,
to a paradise?

Is the answer to this no?
We'll watch the world unfold
into a paradox.

Cause I always taste the bitter sea,
Waiting for sinking ships to come for me.

No, I can't seem to stand on sifting sand,
So, I'll run back to where it all began.
