gotta haunted heart
a taint in the blood
the sinner in my soul is praying for a flood
where the waves bury me and we're all soaked up
all we are
names in the dust
so carefully we wrote
but the wind is kicking up
let the waves carry me til we all go out
and we all go
send the waves bury me
send the waves carry me
call the waves til we all go out
and we all go


from call the waves, released February 1, 2016
