Come down here,
lay now here.
Settle your head
heavy as lead;

heavy as waves rolling out
sheets of sand and lime.
Flat as panes of time
soaking starlight.

Walk this tide
breaking pride with sinking feet.
Let your ankles ache
to redeem deceit.
Hourglasses gather fog on this water;
let sins dissolve.
Your soul will remember:
your heart will break.
Let it break.
Let it break.
