about

a re-release fomr the i dont feel real demo

lyrics

i was born in the middle of the sea
way out where no one could see me
i swam so far you wouldn't believe
and maybe its all the saline

but i woke up on the bright shore
i told you i was the victim of a murder
you stared at me from your doorway
i guess that we dont talk about it

fifty scars, fifty bright read lines
on the table in front of me, fifty stars in the sky
i look up, i see a vast blank high and
i look down, i feel your ghost between my thighs

i hear myself echo behind my eyes
my shoulders freeze, i hear my cries
the crash like waves on the rocks
they're bubbling and loud but i dont want to talk about it

as though i could fight
away the monsters that night
don't tell me like i don't already know
i should've been stronger, i can't let it go

water-logged from the start, salt for a heart
the current took me under, tore me apart
my flesh became one with my genesis
returning to the place of my salty origin

as though i could fight
away the sea that dreadful night
don't tell me like i don't already know
i should've been stronger i cant let it go

i was born in the middle of the sea
way out where no one could see me
i swam so hard you wouldn't believe
why did no one believe me?
