hold your head up high above the water ‘cause if you don’t you know you’re sure to drown. my name is josef and i am the sea. i see your plans and your figures, like you’ve been losing a life. i see a more perfect union, i see there’s more to the light in your eyes. this could’ve buried me and i wouldn’t know. this tide could’ve swallowed me whole. i’ve been holding onto everything i ever thought i’d be, but i’ve been losing myself, losing myself in me. i need the water, to fill up my lungs as i breathe. i need the morning light to leave.
