I was wrong
She showed me disaster footage at night
I played along
I was shipped out and I swore I would write
Towers of tapes
She used them as candles when her people died
Just a storm off the capes
Every few nights I dream that she is alive

We built some dams
We took on the river, we raised the deceased
Harlequin bands
Shovelling sand at the mouth of the beast

We watched them 'till dawn
Mudslides, firestorms, twisters, and floods
Since she's been gone (since she's been gone)
The sunset glows with the heat of her blood

We built some dams
We took on the river, we raised the deceased
Harlequin bands
Shovelling sand at the mouth of the beast

I've got her name tattooed on my boat
I left her after my weeks on the shore
I told her I worked for the government
Now no one goes to the shore anymore

We built some dams
We took on the river, we raised the deceased
Harlequin bands
Shovelling sand at the mouth of the beast
