lyrics

Tried to say what words can't speak
through eyes pressed tight, dawn heavy closin in on me
I cast it sideways, I cast it sideways
I cast this anchor deep it binds me to the night, every time when I
look at all the years that passed, and all the ones to be, and this that lies before us, right in front of you
Like siren's callin' me, like sirens callin' me back to the rocks where I's born

Every morning before the sun rose, I rose to catch the wheels from spinnin' my
mind crazy with it, full of pieces and needing peace but I can't find it, so
I make some rhymes of it, I take my time findin'
anything' I can breathe a bit of lightning, breathe a bit of life into empty pages
Every morning before the sun rose I rose to find you, still I rise to find you

Tried to turn my back, my thoughts
like rip tide quick your body's pullin' at me
Could I cast it sideways, could I cast it sideways
Even if my spoken broke to nothin’ still I'm left with a negative burned behind my eyes
And every year that passes, every one to come - this taste for the words that can tell of it all
Like siren's callin' me, like sirens callin', my back burden willingly worn

Every morning before the sun rose, I rose to catch the wheels from spinnin' my
mind crazy with it, full of pieces and needing peace but I can't find it, so
I make some rhymes of it, I take my time findin'
anything' I can breathe a bit of lightning, breathe a bit of life into empty pages
Every morning before the sun rose I rose to find you, still I rise to find you

still I rise, still I rise...
