Lyrics

Across the ocean
Under the sand
That got in your wounds
Across the ocean
Under the land
That you now consume
There sleeps a demon
It wakes at night by the light of the moon

And it’s watching while you sleep
While you sit and dream
Of all the people laughing
Picking up the shells
Too concerned with suntans
Nobody can tell

They end up empty, wanting, wandering
Hollow like their shells
On seashores and sailors can tell they’ll never tell to their maidens and babies
Tales that they’ll never tell

Across the ocean
Under the water that got in your lungs
There sleeps a demon
It knows exactly what you will become

And it’s watching while you sleep
While you sit and dream
Of all the people laughing
Picking up the shells
Too concerned with suntans
Nobody can tell

They end up empty, wanting, wandering
Hollow like their shells
On Seashores and sailors can tell they’ll never
Tell to their maidens and babies
Tales that they’ll never tell

While you’re dreaming at the sea…

They end up empty, wanting, wandering
Hollow like their shells
On Seashores and sailors can tell they’ll never
Tell to their maidens and babies
Tales that they’ll never tell

They end up empty, wanting, wandering
Hollow like their shells
