Lyrics:

SHIPWRECKED All Rights Socan 2014

By Jaron Reid Rovensky

Tears bleed me dry, pain wells up inside
Fears, they remind me, that I am me
And don't fade with new philosophy

Scars don't just appear, they remain there in the mirror
I have been told, of eternal bliss
But I know it's not for me
The blind still wish to see

CHORUS
I'm shipwrecked, don't try to dissect me, leave me alone
Worn thin, God the shape that I'm in, it's not unknown
There are beaches full of shipwrecks like m
And we all must return to the sea, oh life, scattered debris

Wretchedness within, reflects wickedness without
Life you brute, so much misery
Penned by authors of power and greed

It's not that I can't love, oh contraire, I love to much
But I won't hide my eyes, nor swallow your lies
The truth hurts and pain comes for free
But pain can set you free

CHORUS
I'm shipwrecked, don't try to dissect me. Leave me alone
Worn thin, God the shape that I'm in, it's not unknown
There are beaches full of shipwrecks like m
And we all must return to the sea
Oh life, scattered debris
A whale cast upon a beach
Or the moon adrift out at sea
