God of the Sea

lyrics

Time is an ocean, I decided to swim. Said screw it, and dove right in.
The water surrounds me and it pulls me down. Down to Atlantis, down to drown.
Time is a river, and it goes on by. To the edge of the world, and into the sky.
But I keep swimming strong. So I don’t go back to where I’m from.
I’d go on for a thousand miles and a thousand years, just so I don’t end up back here.

Ya I’d do anything to get out of this current, out of the current, and into the future.
Anywhere but here, Anything but fear.
Anywhere with you, Anything with you.
That’s what I’d do.

If I were god of the sea I’d save you and me.
Leave everyone else to drown, leave everything in this town.
Leave everything behind, out of my mind, out of my sight, out of my life, out of our life.
Just you and me, just me and you.
That’s what I’d do.

Time is a lake, teeming with life. Either uninterested., or interested in causing strife.
An eel to sting you when you do something wrong, A shark to bite you when you don’t get along.
Time is rain, falling from the sky. Washing away problems, leaving memories to the public eye.
I continue to cry, just to forget the where and why.
I’d go on through a thousand smiles for a thousand years, just so I don’t remember I’m here.

Ya I’d do anything to get out of this current, out of the current, and into the future.
Anywhere but here, Anything but fear.
Anywhere with you, Anything with you.
That’s what I’d do.

If I were god of the sea I’d save you and me.
Leave everyone else to drown, leave everything in this town.
Leave everything behind, out of my mind, out of my sight, out of my life, out of our life.
Just you and me, just me and you.
That’s what I’d do.

But I’ll stay and wait, cause you have faith left, even though all I see is the hate left, and right
Ready to fight anyone who doesn’t think like them, act like them, look like them, see like them, see like them, be like them.
If it were up to me, I’d leave, with you.
That’s what I’d do.
