lyrics

Keep my mind
Down in the water where I bathe and let it
Steep my mind
Down in the water

I have been a fool for shame
Like a sunburnt lover of the far-away
But when you come home waving all your tourist claims
The gate falls where you would go

Keep my mind
Down in the ocean where I played and keep it
Down deep in time
Down in the water

Draw my eye to center stage
To the little ghost who wears my name
And keep it there until the white lights fade
To blue and red and back again

Like a coward, like a fool
I've been washing away
Every scar, every bruise on my face
Down to, down to the bottom

Keep my mind
Down in the water where I bathe and let it
Steep my mind
Down in the water
