lyrics

Elephant Island
Hidden beneath the shorthand
Dare to test the land
Found the lungs I tore out
On Endurance’s Floor
A creepy eye shrilled
Between the guts and waves
Men are striving the winds are blowing
Here comes on the crest of a wave

Reaching out for the cold
Counting things I should’ve done
Until it’s time to burn in here
Thy love
Reaching out for the cold
Counting things I should’ve done
Until it’s time to burn in here
My love

Put our loves ones in the background
Packed frozen and it’s thick in here
An escapist from Bueno Aires
When it hit the rock took the fear
Tonight they are landlocked
Cut and bound on a valiant face
Too many times before
Too many times before

Reaching out for the cold
Counting things I should’ve done
Until it’s time to burn in here
My love
A folding distance light
Holding on inside
Until it’s time for you to leave
My love


We’re coming undone
We’re coming undone
We’re coming undone
We’re coming on home

In the shadow of man
In the shadow of man
In the shadow of one
In the shadow of one

We are not the last
We were never lost
Our ships hiding
Hiding in the fall

Reaching out for the cold
Counting things I should’ve done
Until it’s time to burn in here
My love
A folding distance light
Holding on inside
Until it’s time for you to leave
My love
