lyrics

You wake and wait for light to frame
the spectacle of day
The world's your oyster
you ease it open and then you pillage and rape
leaving in your wake the spoiled shells widespread
barren, shaken from their soiled and empty beds
You have traveled far and wide
caressing the depths of every tide
and still there's nothing that you find
to keep you occupied
You'll never be satisfied

Swim farther down
Look harder
Drown

One by one, as you exhaust the seas you are not conquering
The overindulgent prince is little more than just
the son of the king
Inheritance is not entitlement to inflict suffering

Swim farther down
Look harder
Drown

Is this what you want?
Am I what you've been searching for?
Am I what you want?
Am I what you've been searching for
'cause I'm yours
As they make their way up to the shore
their mouths move
They call out to you
I'm yours
Tired and pearlescent blue
they have not forgotten you
I'm yours

about

Cristina Bautista Seattle, Washington

Some people pull themselves together so quietly no one realizes there was any falling apart to begin with.

I'm certainly not about to do that.
