OPEN SEA (ASCEND edit)

who builds a world upon a man?
my ship has sailed, this ship has sailed.
it was loaded with jewels and gems.
wave my vices farewell for the best.

the careless knot i knew wouldn’t hold
pulled you out to open sea.
silence drained us on all that was golden,
you got the worst of me.
shouting at the top of my lungs
as loud as the siren sings.
now i watch it all slip away, slip away
with my hands untied as the sky bleed red.

as empty as your open chest,
i roam the hills deliriously,
walk in the shatters at the bottom of our ocean.
you drifting off to leave me clean.

the careless knot i knew wouldn’t hold
pulled you out to open sea.
silence drained us on all that was golden,
you got the worst of me.
shouting at the top of my lungs
as loud as the siren sings.
spiralling out of control,
i had to set you free.
now i watch it all slip away, slip away
with my hands untied as the sky bleed red.
