lyrics

Golden hour on a rocky shore
Fleeting feeling there was something more
Than what I’d captured in the frame
Old mathematics, fortune plus blame

Satisfied, in that anxious way
Of a place you love but know you can’t stay
Feel it deep, the sun and the sea
But deeper still is your vacancy

Slow build piecing together the day
Peaks and crests arrest the mess of what I meant to say

Sound on sound
Regrets and fury unbound
My truth surrounds, hide in the air
If you don’t care, then they’ll never be found
In this sound on sound

Can’t relax in this dawning sun
This symphony doesn’t want to be done
This photograph, that dress you wore
Bleeding colors forming towering chords

The same old dance we’ve been sitting out for years
The song is rising, crying like a siren, but never in your ears

Sound on sound
Regrets and fury unbound
My truths surround, hide in the air
If you don’t care, then they’ll never be found
In this sound on..

The tension twists and shifts and grows
But you’ll never hear enough to know
In blinding light where I see the least
I spread my ash on Folly Beach

Sound on sound
Regrets and fury unbound
My truths surround, hide in the air
If you don’t care, then they’ll never be found
In this sound on sound

Sound on sound
Cacophony welling up from the ground
My straining voice, come push or shove
Can never quite be heard above
This sound on sound
