Track Name: Bound for the Deep
The daughter of rules put down her lessons
Lifted up hands like wings to the stars
When only a fool would dare tempt the angels
With crackling bones and a failing heart
With crackling bones and a failing heart
Don’t call on her, you silver-tongued jailer
You rusty purveyor of old-fashioned lies
She’s not afraid to take what’s been offered
Everything breaks in its time
Everything breaks in its time

Chorus
Little ships in tiny harbors
Leave their berths for open sea
Slipping out on endless water
They are bound for the deep
They are bound for the deep

Grandmother Ghost spoke to the stranger
She danced with the sailor, she questioned the thief
He gave her his book and she read every mystery
In his eyes she could see
In his eyes she could see

Chorus
Little ships in tiny harbors
Leave their berths for open sea
Slipping out on endless water
They are bound for the deep
And his lips tasted of iron
And he rocked her like a swell
Lay her trembling arms to sleep there
And she filled his brittle shell
And her heart bore him as well

They cast out their nets in spinning motions
Spilling oceans over sand
Something magic lives among us
When the sea consumes the land
When the sea consumes the land

Chorus
Little ships in tiny harbors
Leave their berths for open sea
Slipping out on endless water
They are bound for the deep
Little ships in tiny harbors
Leave their berths for open sea
Slipping out on endless water
They are bound for the deep
