One day, I found a big book buried deep in the ground
I opened it, but all the pages were blank
And to my surprise, it started writing itself
One day, I found a big book buried deep in the ground


I'm a fountain of blood
In the shape of a girl
You're the bird on the brim
Hypnotized by the whirl


Drink me, make me feel real
Wet your beak in the stream
The game we're playing is life
Love is a two way dream


Leave me now, return tonight
The tide will show you the way
If you forget my name you will go astray
Like a killer whale trapped in a bay


I'm a path of cinders
Burning under your feet
You're the one who walks me
I'm your one way street


I'm a whisper in water
A secret for you to hear
You are the one who grows distant
When i beckon you near


Leave me now, return tonight
The tide will show you the way
If you forget my name you will go astray
Like a killer whale trapped in a bay
