lyrics

White sand follows where the wind blows,
I don't remember time before the bluff,
The sky is indigo enough,
The stars make twinkling halos on the western waterline

You see their faces dissipate in the red light,
The sky engulfs the frame,
Tell yourself you needed this as everything's undone,
You feel their pity and you're under the spotlight,
You can't escape the shame,
The ocean's calling out for you,
There's saltwater under your skin

The city has no up or down to me,
all grid lines point to neon,
Jet stream falls on me,
Quicksand fades with me,
O Persephone where is your sense of misery,

You see their faces desiccate in the blue light,
The sky engulfs the frame,
Tell yourself you needed this as everything's undone,
You feel their pity and you're under the spotlight,
You can't escape the shame,
The ocean's calling out for you,
There's saltwater under your skin

I am the one you're telling not to wake,
I haven't slept in seasons I cannot recall,
It's not for martyrdom or your sake,
What will I do when summer turns to fall

You see their faces replicate in the white light,
The sky erupts in flame
Tell yourself you needed this as everything's undone,
You feel their pity and you're under the spotlight,
You can't escape the shame,
The ocean's calling out for you,
There's saltwater under your skin
