An Ocean We Can Breathe
LYRICS...
These frequencies are changing
A soft acceleration
Across the surface of the sea
We move away too easily

Some kind slow invasion
A sort of swift translation
Into someone I can see
Are you someone I can see?

These surfaces are trembling
Someone is reassembling
I see you shining through the sea
We pass from sea to shining sea

And there's a quiet splendour
And there's a silent sender
And there's an ocean we can breathe
There's an ocean we can breathe

I thought it was all fixed
But now I know it's really liquid
And we dissolve too easily
We dissolve too easily

And there's this other version
Of you as some other person
We translate you though them to me
Then translate them through you to me

Figures in the thunderlight
Are fossilised like ammonites
But someone in splendour drifting free
Across the surface of the sea

And there's a quiet splendour
And there's a silent sender
And there's an ocean we can breathe
There's an ocean we can breathe

NOTES...
"Always wanted to breathe the water when I was swimming, dissolve in it all somehow. That's what music is. That's what living in a city is. Sink or swim. Breathe the water or drown. When you can breathe it, you can go anywhere. No gravity. No time."
