lyrics

The coast is clear tonight
And I can hear the ships
As they crash on distant shores

Grains of sand outmatched
By balls of distant gas
And I can't claim to comprehend
The size of facts like these

We go to sleep to find some peace

I've been here before
Each year since I was born
This is where I broke my bones

Strength of will outmatched
By past events rehashed
And I can't claim to know why
I'm consumed by thoughts like these

We go to sleep to find some peace
Reprieve
Release

I have a way of taking parting shots
When I'm feeling lost, yeah
And no one seems to know the strength of glass
Until they heat it to the point of breaking
I have a way of overstating points
Just to make a point
I think I've made my point

The coast is clear tonight
And I can hear the ships
As they crash on distant shores

Grains of sand outmatched
By balls of distant gas
And I can't claim to comprehend
The size of facts like these

We go to sleep to find some peace
Reprieve
Release

I have a way of taking parting shots
When I'm feeling lost, yeah
And no one seems to know the strength of glass
Until they heat it to the point of breaking
I have a way of overstating points
Just to make a point
I think I've made my point

On the other side this is who we are
We act surprised although we know it all
We were told that the best defense
Always was a strong offense

Melted plastic can cause a scene
In a simple way it's like discovering
That the coast was never clear at all
But I'll get over this now!
