lyrics

children play with dinosaurs and dream of space,
the past, the future, not here in this time and place,
they only see our lives as fantasies with TV's in our face

that's where I used to stay,
trying to hide form what's inside my ribcage,
scars so long from fingernails that hold on
while we're running away

you've been gone in that dope-sick song where you feel safe

watermark has changed for me,
now I reside on the other side of a whole other street,
the high tide of what we'll tolerate
reach a surface tension, finally breaks,
and that's how that levee gets breached

generations of mistakes
leave us drowning in the fate of a trash-filled rising sea

I hope that you are okay
I cried from one of your old tunes today
drenched in evidence of irreversible change

singin' in the warm rain
on a New Year's Day in Michigan

I hope we make it through this okay,
'cause the high tide of what we'll tolerate,
the high tide of what we'll tolerate,
the high tide of what we'll tolerate,
and the high tide of what we'll tolerate,
reach a surface tension,
it's bound to break,
and that's how that levee get breached

and I'll be screamin,"High time," when the waves,
come crashin' over me
and I'll be screamin,"High time," when the waves,
come crashin' over me
