I am laying on the flat surface
Of an iceberg sent adrift
I'll keep plucking and singing for the rest of my short life
As I watch the blue walls of sky crumble
Into the vast gray of the untamed sea

You were lost before you found me
I was found before I lost you
And now I know why horses get beat postmortem
But I'm happier than I've ever been

I could stay in one place
Witnessing evolution get set alight
How we work against our own best interest
Sacrificing our free time for an ounce less of tonight
And we piss it all into snowbanks
Because no one else knows our names

You were lost before you found me
I was found before I lost you
And now I know why the lie gets repeated
But its easier than looking one another in the eyes

Opening a new fresh wound to pounce on
Pushing just too hard against the grain
Our words were never meant to save us
We were never meant to stay the same
While the singers were all perfection and the music was way too loud
All the smiling children took off their sunday masks

I was lost before you found me
Drifting up to shore
You were unsure what to make of whom you hadn't seen before
A toast a thousand nights prior, here's to looking forward
My legs are blue and frozen, my eyes windows to god
The fact that he can be seen weeping
Is a sign I forever choose to ignore
You clutch this stranger in your arms
Song fading, his life extinguished on the shore
