lyrics

There's an art to living well that's not revenge
Arm the anger with an anchor and keep your head
Tie the laces of the shoes that take you places far from blues
Be an army for your love and pledge your truth.
We'll build an ark with hands in hands, not wood and nails
Calm the storm with gentle breaths and soft details
Tidal races will whirlpool but no wave will dare touch you
Be an army for your love, you're bulletproof.

If you're a secret no-one can tell
You're just the sea deaf in the shell
You've been trying to no avail
To keep the tide behind a veil
You tend towards the swell
You have a thirst that none can quell
Resigned to live inside in the belly of the whale.

If the sharks smell blood they'll circle what they crave
But a lamb can be wolf and courage will be saved
Tiny graces fall on you and cause the flowers onboard to bloom
Be an army for your love and live as proof.

If you're a secret no-one can tell
You're just the sea deaf in the shell
You've been sinking since you set sail
So now it's unnatural not to fail
You tend towards the swell
You have a thirst that none can quell
Resigned to live inside in the belly of the whale.
If you're a secret no-one can tell
You're just the sea deaf in the shell
You've been trying to no avail
To keep the tide behind a veil
You tend towards the swell
You have a thirst that none can quell
Resigned to live inside in the belly of the whale
Resigned to live inside in the belly of the whale.
