Protest The Hero – Palms Read lyrics

As often as always evolution comes crawling from the sea
Alive with urgency like suicide convinced the grass is greener on dry earth.

The march of serrated utterance like a soft cough
Muffled murmur sneaking through the lecture hall.
The crawl across the island, the sound of waves
Embodied water sprouting legs as loud as gallop

All the young people who took a leap without faith into a riverbed
That drowns about as much as it saves
Cuffing down on ground against the cries of gravity

Belly-up, half buried in the sand.
Extend a hand to the smallness of death
Understand that only dying is this colossal
Creation shedding skin to find a perfect equilibrium like fossils

All the young people took a leap of new faith

All the young cowards acting out

All the young cowards acting out for the braves forever hurled
Into the waters of their indifferent graves.

For a million years raise your glass in cheers
We will never answer where we came from
Only how we got here.
