Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD)

Well, your arms are strong as tides,

But you sway her like the wind

You breathe me in like ocean currents,

But hold her sea beneath your wings


Whisper my name into salt waters,

Baptize me into the waves,

Curse my sins, what I've done wrong,

Sway me ways you do with her.


Bring the lightning, touch my knees

Kiss her gently, sing my song

Spin her round, tell me softly

Tell me, what I've done wrong


Well, you stroked her like a serpent,

Whispered her name into the sea,

Cursed her name, what she's done wrong,

You felt your sins and swallowed me.
