(feat. Coury Palermo of Lynden)

Stopping your heartbeat
But the parts stay in their place
Call on yourself tonight
Don't back away

Scratches on skin move slow
Put it back put it back down low
I felt a trace of your craving

The living sometimes will wait their whole lives
Today you take mine
Strength of a god as I open my hands to you

Send all my blood to you
Till your oceans have filled right through
And on the shored I will wait for days

It's not a cause for alarm
It's a strange and lovely place
Your absence makes me strong
So here I will wait, I will wait, I will wait

The living sometimes
Today I told it goodbye
A creature dead in your jaws
Strength of a god as I open my hands to you

Here in these oceans I wait as you call
You said you would come back, you told me yourself
Light will escape you wherever you are
So in darkness I will wait
