The ocean is dry
i feel like somethings not right
what is this thing I can't name
when there's no one to blame?

Well I'm taking my time
to bring it back to the line
give up these things that aren't mine

The music plays; I’m feeling all right

I get together with my maker and I'm
working it out

There's no perfect time
no list of hills you should climb
to feel your place in the game
you press for infinite play

Well I’m watching the tide
it's lettin’ out like a sigh
that’s how I'm fully alive

The music plays; I’m feeling all right

I get together with my maker and I'm
Working it out

I'm edging towards the line
I'm moving through the tide
The music feels alright
