lyrics

Sarah grew with the same thoughts, and Jack was working for the Sharks, and I’d been asleep by western empires, or in parking lots.
Still kitchen windows, frozen lawns—as if nothing happens when we’re gone.
We left our neighbors helmetless, seasons folded in their arms.

And who knows?
All I know. It’s been a long time going home.

Our absence cast along the floor, and we’re not calling anymore.
How far out past our wading knees until we’re on our way back to the shore?

And who knows?
All I know. It’s been a long time going home.
