lyrics

I conceived my own penitentiary
I dreamt the padded walls and a million locks but not one of the keys
Oh, St. Michael in peril of the sea in all your breathtaking beauty
I’m as hopeless as the high tide crossing to the mainland just out of reach

I concede, her demons live on in me
I daren’t even dip a toe in that treacherous sea out of fear I’ll drown
Won’t St. Michael come look for me now?
Her ghost is holding my head down and pulling at the hook in the side of my mouth
God, just let me out

Oh this is anything but living
And I feel everything but alive
Take me back to that prairie highway
And lay me on the saline flats tonight
