lyrics

And if you dive the sea will open up
Cover you with arms of airless love
And if you can not breathe then you will know
You were never meant to sink so low

I could tell you all the dreams I've been dreaming
But you know them without knowing them, it seems
They're like characters in a book I am writing
They know their own way, know their own way

The underlord will greet you with a trident
Take your life or send you on your way
And if you wake a-wishing to remember
You'll know that you must fight another day

I could tell you all the dreams I've been dreaming
They might make you cry or make you laugh
I could your pour you out a glass of what I'm thinking
You might take a sip and hand it back

And when they forge a foot for you of iron
You'll realize it was coming all the time
They will not let you leave now, so beware
Of becoming too beloved to folks down there

In the floating world, nothing ever changes
In the floating world, nothing remains the same
In the murky depth of bluish light and shadow
You lose something, you won't see it again
