The Sea Within You

Series of signals, visible marks – so wrong to assume there was light in the dark
An owl, an alley cat, a hermit crab
We say there was nothing that we could’ve done – a silent lie when we need one
You’re brought back here to your ancestral home

Go on tell me, I really want to know, through the sunlight, through the snow
Yes, tell me now, did you do it according to plans?

And who would start believing in this too late hour
I lay my flower, I hide my dirty face

And whom did I know?
An owl, a hermit crab, an alley cat

And we saw all the signals saw all the marks – so why assume there was light in the dark?
Shell cracked open, pearl was black
And we try hard to think it was nobody’s fault – means we don’t want to be human at all
You’re brought back here along with the things you owned

So go on tell me, I really want to know, through the sunlight, through the snow
Tell me now, was it in the heat of the moment?

Who would start believing in this too late hour
I lay my flower, I hide my dirty face

And whom did i know?
An owl, a hermit crab, an alley cat
Shell cracked open, pearl was black
