Down here I wait with all my benthic friends
Underneath the gate, listening to lives end
Those with seven gills will investigate
Each thunderous crash and corresponding shape

In great detail, I described you to each of them
In case the bridge is how you choose to end

I'd like to have some last words with you before
You end up on the Farallone's rocky shores
Where the real beasts await to have their way
With all the failures washed out from the bay

A hundred years have past since just last autumn
Please come to the bay, see who now lives on the bottom

I'd like to have some last words with you before
I forget how to walk upon these muddy shores
And entirely cease to breathe like a man
Seeing things with only the tips of my hands

"My heart is crushed by the jaws of regret
Upon knowing where you now make your bed
The depths at which I've chained you to
I pray those shackles eventually rust through..."

Held under by chiton-like lies
Amongst the corpses, I'll never surface
Debris bouncing off my hide
Covered in detritus, I've lost purpose

"What comfort lies in years of hating me?
Haven't you in some way found a rare peace?
Please realize, your very soul's at stake
You're still a man, and I was just a tool of fate."

Your bite marks riddled my soul
It got damn cold with all those holes
So I left it on shore for all the gulls
(Take it)
There wasn't much left
(Take it)
But it's all yours
Take it
