lyrics

You would argue with the water
Argue with the sand and what it’s for
Stand where they meet
With foam on your feet
Try to deny the sea its own shore

You are starry-eyed and cynical
Angry as a catfish in a boat
Every word is barbed
Like rusted wire
Or blank as a deer in the road

Let me tell you what I think
Let me tell you what I think

You could reach it if you run
You could find it if you look
But you still don’t care whose dignity you take
I still call a crook, a crook

You swear that your ship’s not sinking
Throwing tantrums like jetsam out to sea
I see what’s for sale
And what’s for certain
Washing up to greet me

You’re etching your actions in the amber
Hollow fossils to outlive us all
So I will stack up my love
Of what’s right and what we’re made of
And wait for your hate to fall

Let me tell you what I think
Let me tell you what I think

You could reach it if you run
You could find it if you look
But you still don’t care whose dignity you take
I still call a crook, a crook

I will reach it because I run
I will find it because I look
I will not give up my freedom
Like it’s something that I took

I will not give up my freedom
Like it’s something that I took
