Bring on your hunters
Let them bring their dogs
It's me that you wanted
I've been right here all along

Right here all along
You better bring your buckets
We've got some dreams to drain
I'll be at the bottom

I've been right here waiting so long
Just waiting so long
Dreams to drain
Put them in a cage

Unlock the pain
And I'll be here waiting
You fell asleep with the key
All your walls

Mean nothing to me
I know you'll come back
To set us free
Run my dear son

Until we get to the trees
And keep on going all the way
We've got to get right down to the sea
We've got to get to the sea

My dear son
We've got to get to the sea
Don't you touch the water
Don't you barely breathe

And if you see yourself
Looking back at you
You're gonna have to leave
You're gona have to leave

I don't want you to go
But you've got to leave
Dreams to drain
Put them in a cage

Unlock the pain
And I'll be here waiting
You fell asleep with the key
All your walls

Mean nothing to me
I know you'll come back
You're going to set us free
I don't want you to go

But you've got to leave
You can always come to me
I'll give you what you need
Run my dear son

We've got to get to the sea
