lyrics

i was a ghost ship / with it's sails fully raised
throughout my wandering / i could see no land
the world was quiet / held up by two hands
on the back of a serpent / slowly swallowing it's tail
the ocean that i crossed / the waves like rolling hills
slid between my fingers / like handfuls of sand

i’ve seen locusts retreating / across my moonlit bow
crashing into clouds / with plans all their own
and my syntax stutters / like an albatross in a storm
high up on my masts / flags flutter like their own ghosts
the lights they flicker / imitations of themselves
trying to spell something / in some obscure code
