So this is all of the words that I have never written
the thoughts that I have always mistaken
leaving out the lines that were crossed
and leaving out the lies that were tossed
sent up the stream to live out at sea
where they can rest on the bottom of the world
alone and dark like they were from the start

as the lies leave my lips and find the ocean floor
i stand and wonder what happens when i walk out the door
do i find a place that is remarkably new
or is it the same world that I already knew

there could be a day that the ashes will come
and I’ll be sent to a world up above
but as I see the world I love most
fall to the axis of the flames and smoke
i will remember that I didn’t have a regret
as I’ve sent my lies out to sea
so that I can finally rest
