Down By the Sea Engines

from by Left On Avalon



Down, down by the engines
I hear a voice singin’ to me

Down, down by the water
Where the waves scream at me

There, there at the corner
They’re gonna try to drown me

Here, here at the ocean
I lay it all at your feet

But fears, fears they are coming
They’re coming up, to my knees

The end, the engines of war
They’re gearing up to be set free

All hell, is coming after me

Can, I keep my head above water
Or will they smother me

Run, running’s no way
To live a life, set free

Shore, I need the shoreline
That’s all I got to believe

Down, by the engines
Down, by the engines
Down by the thundering engines
Can I believe
