feel the chop of the waves
as I’m looking back
though they’re capsized and closed
like a noose around my neck
if you’ve never felt a weight like I do
listen to me now
cause I know our kind
and we can’t take it back
won’t leave you once it’s done

white then gray to black
tight together, hunkered down
under guard of deep cut cold
lest their breath should break
he rises and it rends
releases then retreats
but ever we move on
to shallows and the shoals
towards this thing I’ve done

out of the darkness
lift to the light
cast out the catch boys
grab and hold him tight
did you give surrender
did we break your might
oh those memories they linger
haunt me now at night

oh the shallows and shoals
stay with me on and on
