o beautiful, for spacious skies i put aside.
purple majesty, you restless thing.
don't abandon me.

maybe i've lost my faith in history,
and the only thing i believe in now
is the sound of the atlantic.

o beautiful, from sea to sea, famously shining.
o beautiful, for gravity.
be with me through this century.

in the east the sun rises, there are hurricanes.
i can taste the salt water.
and when the earth is only dust and brine,
we'll eat the salt water taffy.

    General CommentThe whole Atlantic EP is about leaving Wisconsin and moving to New York. "Nuts to the past, let's go east and find something new".
