shook out the blankets with dust in their eyes
and you're ancient
wood is eaten through
but uptown they are saying that their
ships are on time
anchors away
we're chained to the bottom
put away and forgotten
how this feels

busy living most of our lives
on the lexington line
shuffled on subways
our 4 alarm fires are frozen in ice
anchors away boys
we are chained to the bottom
we've put away and forgotten
how this feels

somekind of lonesome
that they've
translated outwards for us
sleep in your ocean
chest towards the sun
you'll find love
it's easier to long for the days
when they left off to thank you
crush and outrank you
with hollows in their eyes

chasing the low birds
who sow up the skyline for us
sleep on your ocean
chest towards the sun
you'll find love
love
