A shipwreck that foraged its way to the sands
Left me behind on your commands
I was ripped at by currants, swallowed by swells
As you stood on dry land and waved me farewell

You watched me sink lower, lower, lower down

I was cursed by your kindness, lashed at by love
And as I sank deeper down all I could think of
Was the empty shell where your heart had been
Its evacuation had been a long time comin’

You watched me sink lower, lower, lower down

Well after all this time, all these memories
You finally prove you’re sick through and through with disease

Well I was the fool who thought I could fix
Your broken parts and churn love out of it
Well would you look at me now, swallowed by swells
With you on dry land waving me farewell

You watched me sink lower, lower, lower down
