Track Name: Ghosts We Know
oh while she watched the light
the sea would roar and spray
and catch on every rock and wave
that took her man away
oh we were calling out
to the god up in the sky
shaking angry fists
and asking why you'd let those good men die

your hand was stretched out to meet mine
and take me far away from here
like we could own the whole world
without a care
you called out trust me
with feathers in your eyes
i cut the rope
and pulled the rest inside

oh you called me out to the dock
to call the names of the lost
ones that fade away
and so we named those up ghosts one by one
to remember who they were,
all those fathers and all those sons

dont make me fall apart again
teach me to divine.

oh while you were out casting the line
you told me wait wait wait for me i'll be home one night
i rode my hands over the waves
as they came
i held vigil night and day and night and day
and loss creates a living based on need
there's no room for the things you want
when there's hungry mouths to feed
and oh you left me all alone
to house this void
to fill our home

did you see an end in sight
for all the ways we sinned along the ride
your hands so much larger than mine
dirty fingernails at my pulse
heartbeat set aside
take me down with you in the tide
