Lions Lions – Waves lyrics

I'm starting to feel this water wrapped around my chest

Hold your breath before this wave crashes over us
Hide all your valuables and keep your kids locked up
With a job like this
We get paid to collect bodies
We come and go so quick
We get paid to collect bodies

Have you had enough
Or is it something deep inside
That you're just not telling us
Building up walls and barricades
It's something like an illusion
So take a deep breath
And feel this ocean water filling up your lungs

Hold your breath before this wave crashes over us
Hide all your valuables and keep your kids locked up
With a job like this
We get paid to collect bodies
We come and go so quick
We get paid to collect bodies

Please don't forget to wrap these weights around your ankles baby
Fill your pockets with every empty apology they gave you
Because tonight because tonight
You'll be sitting all alone at the bottom
Who's gonna save you tonight

Hold your breath before this wave crashes over us
Hide all your valuables and keep your kids locked up
With a job like this
We get paid to collect bodies
We come and go so quick
We get paid to collect bodies
So just rip me away from that normal sense of security
And you'll be born again on a river bank
Now before you drown yourself
Were these scares never meant to heal?
Was this heart never meant to feel?
Well I hope this time
Breaks you down

I'm starting to feel this water wrapped around my chest

Hold your breath before this wave crashes over us
Hide all your valuables and keep your kids locked up
With a job like this
We get paid to collect bodies
We come and go so quick
We get paid to collect bodies

I'm starting to feel this water wrapped around my chest
