    There is a house by the sea
    Two jealous sisters, they're waiting for me
    And one is laid on the floor
    And one is changing the locks on the doors
    And I've been buying the time on my knees
    And I've been selling their blankets to bleed (on)

    Around the house by the sea
    The scent of roses and raspberry leaves
    And there is smoke in my clothes
    Too much time with just smoke in my nose
    And I've been making the meaning they lack
    And I've been burning that book they come back too

    There is a house by the sea
    And an ocean between it and me
    And like the shape of a wave
    The jealous sisters will sing on my grave
    And I've been living to run where they led
    And I've been dying to rise from their bed
    And I've been sparing my neck from their chain
    And they've been changing the sound of my name
    And I've been swimming to them in my sleep
    And I've been dreaming our love and our freedom
