lyrics

We followed the ship for nights
It glowed a green and phantom light
A flare had fallen to their deck
A ghostly glow that kept us back
Of course we knew better than that
But we're still afraid, and the world's still flat

We found their bodies on the beach with crumpled letters wet with ink
They said we should have known better than that
So we took their sails and stitched them back
A monument to what had passed
Our superstitions rectified

And it's calming, so calming to believe
Burying could bring some peace to a lifeless body
Our superstitions rectified

They tunneled ladders to our homes,
So we took the long way, you never know
I think we know better than that
We found some gold set on the ground
Right again, so we wrote it down
We all can know better than that

And it's calming, so calming to believe
Burying could bring some peace to a lifeless body
Our superstitions rectified
We snuck through to the other side
Just out of view of our own lives
Our worth is something we can hide
Until our work has been revised

It's easier to change your mind and cope
than change yourself to be what you had hoped

We built a quiet home to keep our thoughts
and opened all its doors to those we crossed
And eager for a lie we filled them up
With what we thought was life's unquestioned love
And in our lengthy talks we fell so short
Took comfort in some comforting reports
You see it isn't me it's just this world
So move yourself along for your reward

So now we scream we all know better now
The ink has dried and there's no turning back
Attaching our own strings to our own hands
So something pulls our faults to something else
But it's easier to change your mind and cope
Than change yourself to be what you had hoped
And though it's no shame to long for more,
It just doesn't count when you lock your door
