Of all the churning random hearts
Under the sun
Eventually fading into night
These two are opening now
As we lie, I touch you
Under fuller light

Girl, if you're a seascape
I'm a listing boat, for the thing carries every hope
I invest in a single light
The choice is yours to be loved
Come away from an emptier boat

'Cause when the dead moon
Rises again
We've no time to start a protocol
To hem us in
And when the dog slides
Underneath a train
There's no cry, no use to searching for
The mutt's remain

Throw all consequence aside
In the cheerless pyre we were set alight

Of all the intersecting lines in the sand
I routed a labyrinth to your lap
I never used a map sliding off the land
On an incidental tide
And along the way you know, they try
They try

And we got sea legs
And we're off tonight
Can't have that to which they've no right?
You belong to a simpler time
I'm a victim to the impact of these words
And this rhyme

'Cause when that dead moon
Rises again
We've no time to start a protocol
To hem us in
Darling, when the dog slides
Open the door, and where'd she go?
There's no time, no use to searching for
The mutt's remains

Throw all consequence aside
In a cheerless pyre we were set alight
