I am a child I am imagining
The simple way to break your fall
Don't run when disaster hits
Don't run when they take it all

Lie alone until the dark takes it all
Without a body I am free to dissolve
You became a part of me before I knew myself
You became a part of me before I knew myself

Drifting out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away

Drifting out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away

I walked to a hermit's cell through the tide
Questioning the flesh I own for the time
My twin saw the worst in me the way I saw myself
My twin saw the worst in me reflected in herself

Drifting out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away
Drifting out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away

Waste no time, carry the contagion
Waste no time, carry the contagion

Nothing matters much to you anymore
I can feel your madness form and resolve
Gift me all the ghosts that you preserve inside your head
Gift me all the ghosts that you preserve inside your head

Drifting out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away

Drifting out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away

Drifting out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away

Drifting out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away

[Fades out]

Treading out of reach
America, carry her away
Treading out of reach
America, carry her away
