Landlocked (Dirge)

from by Anna Vogelzang

/

lyrics

funeral song
dirge of the ocean
little dead bird
out on the rocks

sweep me along
under the current
things could be different
if I could run

-- ooh

which is yourr fear
shipwrecks or sailing
being forgotten
once you have lost me

well stranded or not,
I will not be landlocked
you’re bound to your hillside
down to the marrow

now cast me out, unravel
bleed dry in my honor
vessels will all eventually crumble
hollow as a drum

nothing to kill
still you are hunting
ghosts in old buildings
sea glass & snailshells

your treasures are filled
with all of the glory,
blessings & rapture
etched into headstones

cast me out, unravel
bleed dry in my honor
vessels will all eventually crumble
hollow as a drum
