Tides will rise, the time will call
Wish I never saw it fall beneath
Who we are and what we've done
It hasn't shown

Don't tell me that this is just a reason to sleep
Compare your hands to mine
And see who tried this time
And wanting nothing more than to flee these streets
You live for night but this is light
So consider the sea

And I won't say you're useless
Because I've seen you dream
And convincing the sun not to rise won't hide you
And I won't say you're useless
Because of these sea-sick dreams
Forty winks, placid and stationary

Don't tell me that this is just a reason to sleep
Compare your hands to mine
And see who tried this time
And wanting nothing more than to flee these streets
You live for night but this is light
So consider the sea

For the words I lack
And places I won't go
In fear of never coming back

Don't tell me that this is just a reason to sleep
Compare your hands to mine
And see who tried this time
And wanting nothing more than to flee these streets
You live for night but this is light
So consider the sea

    this is probably the catchiest song on the EP.
    however, every song is great.
