lyrics

I Came Here To Confess

The sirens called me late last night
From the mission to the water side
So I took down my sickle and my armor

The words are always love and hope
But their eyes burn just like the rope
Wrapped around the hands of this poor farmer

I came here to confess
I came here to confess
I came here to confess
Cuz things ain’t what they seem

I came here to confess
I came here to confess
Sometimes it makes me
Makes me want to scream

Inst break

I tried to hide it for so long
But it’s right here in every song
And I know I don’t really have a prayer

Cuz underneath these lights I feel
There’s no hiding, no appeal
And even if you love me, oh I swear

Chorus

Cuz I’ve got a workshop deep in a cave
Where mermaids come to sing and rave
And brush their long black hair back just for me
For me

My cousin was a sailor too
She tamed the waves and turned them blue and
Not a single one of us goes free
