Forever Like a Shawl

There is nothing safer than being small, being covered and
The sea is the strongest thing I can pull over myself.
Let me be a pin drop in the ocean
Like a second falling into a century.

Like a second falling into a century
I will float in a slow, roaming universe.
Lungs collapse, hearts fail but water is always it is
Speaking something older than truth, than earth.
I will float in a slow, roaming universe
When I wear it's forever like a shawl.
Speaking something older than truth, than earth,
I know no sleep like its deep rumbling silence
When I wear it's forever like a shawl
Please wash away my face my name.
I know no sleep like its deep rumbling silence.
Iíll let the blood freeze in my veins
Just please wash away my face my name.
I know, in reality, I will drown but
There is nothing safer than being small, being covered and
