lyrics

Thrown to the ocean
bound to my fate
just an empty glass bottle
i rattle towards the wake
hurtle through the air
miss the shoreline rocks
sunk to the bottom
by the post of the dock
the ebb & the flow
brought me to shore
to remember the day
you put sand
in my core

What I was made from
is now what I house
memento of a day
for a man and his spouse
sixteen years pass
and I'm high upon the shelf
until a tremor came in
to relinquish my wealth
body in tact
and sand on the floor
rekindled the memory
of the day at the shore
in the time of being idle
life dealt one cruel hand
stripping a wife and child
from the hard working man

For the first time in years
my purpose was served
filled up with liquid
in chance there was thirst
little did I know
I was filled with that potion
one persons medicine
another mans poison
we went for a drive
back to the coast
tippin me back
and fueling his ghost
he swerved and he cried
as he dwelled in the past
I wasn't all to sure
if my liquid
would last

We arrived to the shore
and he stood up on the pier
one lengthy tilt back
and my liquid
disappeared
with a commotion
and a stumble
I remained
tight in his hand
until the rocks at the bottom
caught the young man
his grip
had loosened
and I'd fallen to the ocean floor
until the ebb & the flow
brought me back to shore
until the ebb & the flow
brought me back
to the
shore
