lyrics

We've been searching for someone lost in the headlights
At the bottom of a well
And for seventeen hours, the water rises up
In the belly of the whale
And then light from the heavens shines upon Nineveh
From the bottom of a well
And we're holding our candles up to the ribcage
In the belly of the whale

Brave the waves
This isn't gonna be easier, you carpenters
Break the waves
This isn't gonna be easier, you carpenters

Stranded this far away from home
The life you save may be your own

In a shipwreck of angles, we're bad lucked and beautiful
In a fading crystal ball
And for seventeen hours, my knife is tracing red
In the line upon my palm
The whale and the well now contend for attention
In a broken crystal ball
When light from the heavens leads us to Nineveh
And washes us ashore

Brave the waves
This isn't gonna be easier, you carpenters
Break the waves
This isn't gonna be easier, you carpenters

Holding the last line of defense
When I fall through the countless leagues and fathoms
Straining for air, we come up with blood
But I knew your name before you wrote it

Your name before you drowned
