I thought of life and letting go
I thought of drowning in that ocean undertow
It’s a different world beneath the crest
To render this up above as meaningless

I have no place but somewhere I’d like to sleep
And rest in my father’s fathers farthest dreams
Then foreign forces speaking clearly through the day
They’re telling me it doesn’t matter if I go or if I stay

They said,”Young man you’re no master here but you have heart.”
In a city that relies on the past to play its part
But we want it all, we want it now
Your forgiveness grows only once in the thorn bush of the South

And you go
You stay

I thought of life and letting go
I thought of drowning in that warm ocean undertow
It’s a strange strange world beneath the crest

And you go
You stay
And you go
You stay
