Open Water

lyrics

It's been a long year...
Sitting in the dark, waiting, not in patience, but in fear
To see which door will open; afraid to stand and test the locks
It takes zero faith to demand a sign, a light, or some divine epiphany

Time slips away
Dreams age without grace
The comfort of the cell that I've created, it clings to me

It's been a long year...
Recalling memories and wondering what happened to me
I used to chase the sun, never looking back
But now, achingly, I only look back
Losing traction in this sinking sand inside
And I can't feel my heart beat

I see the ships set sail into the most incredible horizons on fire
Braving the fears of the deep and the unknowing, fulfilling their design
But these white sails see no weather... They do not hope for treasure
A broken heart's a broken bow; but still, you promised me adventure

Unrest is swelling in my soul

Time slips away
Dreams age without grace
The comfort of the cell that I've created...
Break me out

The thought of dying in this shell...
The harbor has become my hell
Unrest is swelling in my soul
