lyrics

Pacing down at the edge of the dock
Never been off this monochrome rock
Bought my ticket to make the escape
That is no longer only a word on the tip of my tongue

The first wave washes over me
For the moment still moored to the land
The stories I thought would have painted a map
But I know where I'm headed is out of my hands

Let the tether fall
And push away
I tell myself
I'm never going to be the same
As I drift farther from the safety of the shore
A million doors open
And before I see where they go

I am free
I am swallowed
I am beautiful
I am out of control
Take me
How will I ever get home

The mirror can only disguise what I see
(Shall I peel my face away)
Caught in a loop that envelopes the peace
(Can't turn it off, can't make it stop)
Here it comes again

Let the tether fall
And push away
I tell myself
I'm never going to be the same
As I drift farther from the safety of the shore
A million doors open
And before I see where they go

I am caught
I'm enlightened
I'm expendable
I am more than I was before
Save me
How will I ever get home
