Swallowed by Swells

A shipwreck that foraged its way to the sands

Left me behind on your commands

I was ripped at by currants, swallowed by swells

As you stood on dry land and waved me farewell

 

You watched me sink lower, lower, lower down

 

I was cursed by your kindness, lashed at by love

And as I sank deeper down all I could think of

Was the empty shell where your heart had been

Its evacuation had been a long time comin’

 

You watched me sink lower, lower, lower down

 

Well after all this time, all these memories

You finally prove you’re sick through and through with disease

 

Well I was the fool who thought I could fix

Your broken parts and churn love out of it

Well would you look at me now, swallowed by swells

With you on dry land waving me farewell

 

You watched me sink lower, lower, lower down
