lyrics

Ghost nets line the floor,
iPhone cameras pan the fields of tribal war.
Lie down, lie down.
Wall Street trips in fraud,
Someone’s hungry children bomb themselves for God.
Lie down, lie down.
No night rain that I can’t stand
If I know you know me.

Let them whip the world,
Let them try to change our diamonds into pearls.
Lie down, lie down.
So their engines turn in that stroke they tried
To make the kingfish learn.
Lie down, lie down.
How right can it be to be sad
If I know you know me?

You’ve been making it
Just in time enough for now.
I’ve spent too long outside to let you.

Just one cold night left.
I can’t hold you if you have to hold your breath.
Lie down, lie down.
I can’t keep you near
Unless the only place you are is here.
Lie down, lie down.
Light out—fly a little bit harder
I know you know me.
