The War Effort – We Ride Whales lyrics

I was a sailor
I came from the sea
I was a canvas would you please put paint on me
I was a tall man who complained about the sun
I was an avalanche who saved everyone

Coin me a writer and I’ll sing, I’ll sing you a song
Give me a black heart, oh and Ill tell you what she has done
Drink some salvation, oh and tell me what you see
A contract, kill him, so we could sit on top of your tree

Give me a penny thats useless I’ll buy you a home
Kill a carpenter and give his hands to the poor
Theres a fire that burns somewhere up north
Burns somewhere where no ones watching
No ones watching
