lyrics

Confined, there's no space, through holes in the plank
we watch them raise fences, whilst the ship sank
the sea has been rough now for more than a night
but maintains the blood flow, keeps feeding the fight

There's a fortune to be made, encouraged by greed
to look down on the famished, and people in need
To abandon all trust and the hope to succeed
leaves the ink to dry on yet another terrible deed

Yet under the waves, the ways we weigh the world begin to fail
the loss of your breath, lifts the veil
Come back to the air, pressures lifted from your chest
you’re stripped to bare, now do you care?

Come find me displaced, with hell on both sides
from peril to peril, to build a new life
Drowned in the voices, on the edge of a knife
with those who could help us, adrift in the strife

Home is now so, so, so far away
Where will we be going? Will we find a way?
Searching for safety, and a place to belong
A thousand lost people, an ordeal so wrong

Yet under the waves, the ways we weigh the world begin to fail
the loss of your breath, lifts the veil
Come back to the air, pressures lifted from your chest
You’re stripped to bare, now do you care?
We’ll meet you there.

Back to the air, take us
How do you dare forsake us?
We paid the fare, take us
Back to the air

Nametags empty, meek, mast history
Keepers of plenty, moats and mystery
Give us something for our suffering,
Lead us back to the air.
