We were baptized in the ocean
To the sound of us erasing
All the demons that were chasing us
Drown them out out out

Oh I wish I was a planet
With a forest full of answers
But instead I'm just a human freaking out out out

I won't let you worry now
Don't take me off this cloud

This is the sound of us erasing
This is the sound of a wa-a-a-a-a-ave
Take us away-ay-ay-ay

This is the sound of a wa-a-a-a-a-ave
Take us away-ay-ay-ay

I thought you were a dancer
So fuck your inhibitions
Here's a better answer
Drown 'em out out out

Here's the sound of starting over
It's an ocean full of cold
Or maybe just a cormorant
Calling out out out

I won't let you worry now
Don't take me off this cloud
Don't take me off this cloud

This is the sound of us erasing
This is the sound of a wa-a-a-a-a-ave
Take us away-ay-ay-ay

This is the sound of a wa-a-a-a-a-ave
Take us away-ay-ay-ay

Oh it's the sound of a
I hear the sound of a
Wa-a-a-a-a-ave
Take us away-ay-ay-ay
