I don't see
Water images appear in front of me
I am free
I am not bound to the difference between
The real and the real to me

And the only other one who I could ever believe
Is the one that I could feel but never really see
Looking from the island at the peak

You won't say why you would deny me your embrace
Swimming in the sea
I think I understand why you hate me
For what I've done, for what I haven't done

And the only other one who I could ever believe
Is the one that I could feel but never really see
Looking from the island at the peak

    General CommentOn their website it says Amber was at Mount Wittenberg and she saw a bunch of whales in the water. So dave is singing from her point of view and I'm guessing he's talking about how humans fucked things up for the whales, that's why he ain't gettin embraces.

    General CommentAbsolutely fantastic. The song is epic in that way that's also understated. This album gets better the more I listen to it.
