Lyrics

I see the lines in the palm of its hand now
I listen hard but no words spring to mind
And it sounds so sweet, listen to its heartbeat
And I’m drowning in its sea
Falling at its feet
Listen to my heartbeat baby

And the blood sail leaves tonight
Fated in its blindness
And it won’t be long before help is at hand
And the darkness sleeps
Cushioning the heartbeat
And I killed the captain, sank the fleet
To liberate the heartbeat baby
And it sounds so sweet
And it sounds so sweet
Listen to our hearts beat

And the darkness sleeps
Cushioning the heartbeat
And I’m drowning in its sea
Falling at its feet
Listen to my heartbeat baby

It speaks to ghosts and souls alike
Springs to life, and doesn’t think twice
Wrapped in the blood sail
Bathed in snow
Nailed to the source and it won’t let go
Fed on the bible, grown from trees
It opened the mind and the heart was free
A home in the silence, safe from sound
Where trouble sleeps and the light is found
