Underneath the sheets
I could count my blessings
On one hand

With nothing on the other
But silhouettes
Out sinking the land

Sliding out to sea
The rope escaping me
Fraying in my skin
Couldn't pull you in
As everybody stood aside
You cut the ties so well

Left before the dawn
I shadowed for three months there
And everybody saw

A train wreck in the night
A deer in the headlight
But not an accident in sight

And over all the noise
Something became clear
As I waited for three months
For you to disappear

And over all the walls
I could see your face
As you cut the ties
And put her in my place
