"God of Ocean Tides" as written by and Dan Vickrey Adam Fredric Duritz....
Close the door on a short night
Lift the lid on the daylight
6:09 West Tennessee time
I buy all my days
At the same place where the girl sells her nights
To a god of ocean tides

All night long
Writing poems to California
Melodies of failure
And the people I have thrown away
Meanwhile somewhere west of Carolina
In a congregation of strangers
We are digging holes to China
Then we pray to our reflections
In the water when it rises

Headlights pin the highway down
Jesus spins the world around
I spend all my tomorrows coming down
Goodbye all my days
I know I said I never loved you
But I might just try again tonight

Truck stops and river gods
Gas stations of the cross
Following a ghost Following a ghost
I pray the water wash away the memories and the cost
Carry me south to the sea
Along with your memories of me
We are born in the water
I will return to thee

Coloured lights and birthday cakes
Candle wax on paper plates
Breathe the water
Hush-a-bye
You can see through water
All the way up to the sky

Gods of water Gods of rain
Cover up the sun again
We are crossing at the Mississippi line
I tried all my days
To love you just the way you hoped I might
But I’m leaving here tonight
I can’t remember yesterday
I tried
If I said I could
I lied
