Track Name: Policy of Containment
She’s born again
Like being born with a like mind
Would be worth the time, worth the time
And all in all, all is a mess to be denied
Denied and realigned, and redefined
She’s born anew
Like being born with a new mind
When I’ve been losing mine, losing mine

Wait in water until it takes her whole
She saw it coming, all she couldn’t hold
A cold war’s made a boat out of her door

She saw the wall, and said what’s lost could be found
They’ll come around, she said they’ll come around
And all in all, all is a mess to be rewound
And buried in the sound, in the sound
The storm will set, the dead will rise
When lightning strikes but lightning lies
And nothing could be all that’s underground
She saw the wall, now nothing lost will be found
She’ll come around, she’ll come around

Wait, the water is coming for us all
She saw it coming, all she couldn’t haul
Another cold war’s ceiling is her floor
Another shipwreck wrecks her, bloodied on the shore
And now her world is AWOL, it’s beating down her door

Why did you wake me up
They’re trying to wash us away

Wake the water
And watch it take us whole
Track Name: Like a Borderline
You row out in the water
And break down like a borderline
You’re so wired on the ruins receding
Oh, you’re so tired
You come home hiding an arrangement of grace
That folds as quickly as the ghost in your face
You seem like me, too easy to find
You seem like me, too easy to lie to
You seem like me, too easy to find

Better to leave and
Better to breathe when
We own the bones
Better to leave and
Better to breathe though
We owe the bones

You don’t smoke
And they knew that you wouldn’t
And God knows what you’d do
If you knew that you couldn’t
The Lord takes your name and lies awake with the lie
And like you will not abide a liar
You have your cake until it eats you alive, so

Better to leave and
Better to breathe when
We own the bones
Better to leave and
Better to breathe though
We owe the bones

So let go, I’d believe you now
A waste of words, you’re so cold
I don’t know what believing got us
Wasting words we don’t own, we don’t own

Better to breathe and
Better to leave when
We own the bones
Better to breathe and
Better to leave though
We owe the bones
