They who made you, they made me too
Quiet like you, violent like you
I see you there, wild in my dreams
When you return, go to the sea
Air is your permanent struggle to breathe
When you return, go to the sea

Gone, gone, gone, you were never alone
I'll come home and raise you up to what's left
Gone, gone

Ghost of your voice finally rests
Open your eyes now to all that is left
Don't be afraid now, you won't need me
You'll be at peace now, at last from the sea
You will forget eventually
The life that you wasted that led to the sea

Gone, gone, gone, you were never alone
I'll come home and raise you up to what's left
Gone, gone, gone, you were never alone
I'll come home and raise you up to what's left
Gone, gone

They who made you, they made me too
I see they can make us again

    Lyric Correction:i think it's "gone, gone, gone, you were never MINE."

    and "Ghost of your BONES finally rests
    Open your eyes now to all that YOU'VE left"

    and "I SAY they can make us again"

    and perhaps the line in the chorus is "I'll come home
    And raise you up to THE SKY" definitely not "what's left"

    let's keep working...

    General Comment:first to comment on the song... this one's quite sad to me. the more i've heard it, the heavier it's become, the more it feels sort of heartbreaking. some of this is only an approximation, but here's my interpretation thus far:


    they who made you, they made me too
    quiet like you, violent like you
    i'll see you live, wild in my dreams
    when you return, go to the sea
    air is your permanent struggle to breathe
    when you return, go to the sea

    gone, gone, gone
    you were never alone
    i'll come home
    and raise you up to what's left
    go, go

    ghost of your voice finally rests/rise
    open your eyes now to all that --- life/is left (?)
    don't be afraid now, you won't need me
    you'll be at peace now, at last from the sea
    you will forget eventually
    a life that you wasted that led to the sea

    gone, gone, gone
    you were never alone
    i'll come home
    and raise you up to what's left

    gone, gone, gone
    you were never alone
    i'll come home
    and raise you up to what's left
    oh, oh

    they who made you, they made me too
    i say they can make us again

    Lyric Correction:according to Wye Oak:

    they who made you, they made me too. quiet like you, violent like you. i've seen you live wild in my dreams. when you return, go to the sea. air is your permanent struggle to breathe. when you return, go to the sea. gone, gone gone. you were never alone. i'll come home and raise you up to what's left. ghost of your voice, finally rests. open your eyes now to all that is next. don't be afraid now, you won't need me. you'll be at peace now, at last from the sea. you will forget, eventually, the life that you wasted that led to the sea. gone, gone gone (picking up your human pieces) you were never alone. i'll come home and raise you up to what's left.
