lyrics

your surface is as certain as a specter
your purpose is poetical and pure
you’re always blue
and nothing’s true but absolution
and darling, i’m never sure

i wonder what goes on inside that head of yours
what thoughts preoccupy your troubled mind
i wanna break inside of you and rescue your light
but darling, my hands are tied

and the tide’s coming in, and the avalanches
sink while you swim, citizens of atlantis
cynics and romantics, the floor is yours
the home advantage, citizens of atlantis

your message in a bottle was abysmal
tryna turn that water into wine
invisible and miserable, you drown your sorrows
but darling, the water’s fine

‘cause if we don’t exist anymore
will it matter what we stood for?
getting rich and waging a war
it feels so shallow here on the shore

and the tide’s coming in, and the avalanches
sink while you swim, citizens of atlantis
cynics and romantics, the floor is yours
the home advantage, citizens of atlantis
