lyrics

Free rein is a dark horse,
and rhythm guitar is a wash like the ocean.
Let’s dig in and let go the grip of home.

I number my days in no definite way,
I’m a clean pair of boots on a battlefield grave.
Wherever we go, ever in tow.

And Death!
Death, tremble to take me, love.
Assemble and make me tough,
better than who we are.

Speaking from a dark place,
message dictated but never read.
Go on give in and let go the grip of home.

I have triangulated just where I belong:
Its points are the ocean, the city and song.
Wherever we go, ever in tow.

And Death!
Death, tremble to take me, love.
Assemble and make me tough,
better than who we are.

She, understandably, is ready to be free.
Should be no great mystery.

Pacific blood floods through my heart.
My pulse greets the tide at a high water mark.
And then I’m swallowed whole,
in a breach of patrol,
until my breath is gone.

And Death!
Death, tremble to take me, love.
Assemble and make me tough,
better than who we are.

She, understandably, is ready to be free.
Should be no great mystery.
