Telegraph cables hung and few can decipher who the message is from
And delivering quietly cause some don't get much company.
The harbor becomes the sea and lighting of hers keeps it ? and free
Understand the lay of the land and don't let it hurt you or it'll be the first to

The water
The water
Didn't realize it's dangerous eyes

The mountain
The mountain
Came to recognize it's deep and rocky sides
More than realized

Oooo
Oooooo
Oooo
Pale as a pile of bones you held for your babies
And this is how they go when batter knocked over the teeth by the shelter
Watching the gray sky that's acting like a good guy

The water
The water
Came to realize it's dangerous eyes

The mountain
The mountain
Came to recognize his deep and rocky sides
Came to recognize his deep and rocky sides
More than realized
