So this is where is brought me
This is where I am
Two feet in the sand and miles of vapor above
Shifting, composing a bodiless kind of love

I watch kids laughing, slapping feet against the waves
I remember a time I didn’t have try so hard to know my face
So I have moved and I have changed, I harbor regrets
There were times I should have stayed
But I am whole, I stand and sit, and I am parted
But still so much a part of this.

I’m not about to signal or accept defeat
When your handle keeps on slipping, and it’s hard to breathe
The airwaves stay congested – man, they’re choking me
The highways are still open
When your landscape isn’t broke
The horizon isn’t silent
If you don’t condition violence
Reel this island back from the sea
Yes, we can  

There’s bright blue blood coursing through my veins
I’ve sectored myself off and yet I am still the same
The nursery rhymes we heard were victorious once
But I don’t want to die inside them
The scope’s too wide, I’m not done

The black market is dancing waltzes out in the street
Can sell yourself for nickels just to stay on the beat
Bifocals, telescopes can’t teach you how to read
The stars won’t stay aligned with market astrology

I’m not about to signal or accept defeat
When your handle keeps on slipping, and it’s hard to breathe
The airwaves stay congested – man, they’re choking me
The highways are still open
When your landscape isn’t broke
The horizon isn’t silent
If you don’t condition violence
Reel this island back from the sea
Yes, we can
