lyrics

been landlocked so long
when I see the ocean
I don’t know how to look around
there’s something on the horizon
I don’t know how to call it
looks like it’s coming aground

surrounded by eel grass slipping stones
beach glass bird bones
something starts pushing through my skin
I’m growing roots I’m growing wings
I’m dripping poison from my fangs
it's all happening again

I’ve been trying to tell you
but I get drowned out
every call washing
back on Puget Sound

it was the first time in a while
it was the worst timing
I got nobody here I can call
hoping I can find a ride
I feel the water rising
and meet up with the sky as it falls

or is your city sinking?
I’m going under
what does it matter who blinked first
can you call it your own
without taking everything
coerced by a horrible thirst

I’ve been trying to tell you
but I get drowned out
every call washing
back on Puget Sound

can the night tell the truth?
can you trust the moon, smiling while it lies to you,
pooling water at your feet?
if I’m using you
I hope you’re using me
find a kinder tide
to pull you where you need to be

my time is spilling out
I got too much too much to keep
I’ll try you again in a couple of weeks
I’m holding on to all of this
cause there’s nowhere to set it down
until this water recedes

I’ve been trying to tell you
but I get drowned out
every call washing
back on Puget Sound
