Swamp in the Sea

When your turn to fear us
Oh, how it descends

Just another day
To save these scars
How can I remedy
What’s way too far

It’s just a melody
So keep it strong

I just don’t know
Why everything has to go away
How do I stay
If there’s nothing more I can do

A rain ago
Too late to go

Dreary are the boats I sail
Lonely is the boat I am
Knocking, slamming into me
How can I worry, how can I be

Take a drive
Stay alive

They come fiercer in the night
Always knowing with running might
We can’t escape the flames now cast
We’re running from mistakes of past

Keep it simple
Stay nimble 

Can you win the war
If you chase your own tail
Try not to overthink it
That’s the secret
