I'm a root erupting from the ground
A spilling river, running tumbling down a mound
I'm tired of a diet of dirt
My skin is shredding from threading over rocks of hurt

Again the tender tendrils
Bleeding from a seed
Kissed by the rain over and over
Split in two to chase a lover down the drain
In shivering blind men's canes
Quivering divining rods

When the water's clear

I'm a flying boat on sky of ocean
With wings of wake that quake, defying motion
A boiling battle line of ebb and flowing
Collapsing where I'm from and where I'm going

This sense of stasis
Counterfeit calm
Trips with white noise that rips its claws into my memory
Drowns the droning of salty navel lips
From a nascent crypt
That remembers my real name

When the water's clear

I'm a child that has thrown her last rock
Swallowed in a mercury mirror

Will I disappear?

When the water's clear

Sounds great- vocals sound very clear and well-trained. The instrumentation is interesting and dynamic- very nice.

Please check out my band Livewire- and throw a 'like' our way if you are feeling generous!:)
