Cross the street from your storefront cemetery. 
Hear me hailing from inside and realize 

I am the conscience clear 
In pain or ecstacy 
And we're all weaned my dear 
Upon the same fatigue 

We're staring at the sun 
Oh my own voice 
Cannot save me now 
Standing in the sea 
It's just 
One more breath 
And then 
I'll go down 

Your mouth is open wide 
The lover is inside 
And the tumult's done 
Collided with the sign 
You're staring at the sun 
You're standing in the sea 
Your body's over me 

Note the trees because the
Dirt is temporary 
More to mine than fact, face, 
Name, and monetary 

Beat the skins and let the 
Loose lips kiss you clean 
Quietly pour out like light 
Like light, like answering (chorus comes over this part) the sun 

You're staring at the sun 
You're standing in the sea 
Your mouth is open wide 
You're trying hard to breath 
The water's at your neck 
There's lightning in your teeth 
Your body's over me 

Be what you will 
And then throw down your life 
Oh it's a damned fine game 
And we can play all night

You're staring at the sun 
You're standing in the sea 
Your mouth is open wide 
You're trying hard to breath 
The water's at your neck 
There's lightning in your teeth 
Your body's over me 

You're staring at the sun 
You're standing in the sea 
You're staring at the sun 
You're standing in the sea
