    Lyrics

    Tell us all a story
    About how it used to be
    Make it up and write it down
    Just like history
    About goldilocks and the three bears
    Nature in the cross hairs
    And how we all ascended
    From the deep green sea
    When it's not too hot
    Not too cold
    Not too meek
    Not too bold
    When it's just right and you add sunlight
    Then we're home
    Finally home
    Home in the land of the homeless
    Finally home

    Oh what are we going to do
    I never did a thing to you
    Time peaceful as a hurricane eye
    Peaceful as a hurricane eye

    A history of whispers
    A shadow of a horse
    Faces painted black in sorrow and remorse
    White cloud, black crow
    Crucifix and arrow
    The oldest silence speak the loudest
    Under the deep green sea

    When speech becomes a crime
    Silence leads the spirit
    Over the bridge of time

    Over the bridge of time
    I'm waling with my family
    And the road begins to climb
    And it's oh lord how we going to pray
    With crazy angel voices
    All night
    Until it's a new day

    Peaceful as a hurricane
    Peaceful as a hurricane
    Peaceful as a hurricane eye
    Peaceful as a hurricane
    Peaceful as a hurricane
    Peaceful as a hurricane eye
    Peaceful as a hurricane eye

    You want to be a leader?
    You want to change the game?
    Turn your back on money
    Walk away from fame
    You want to be a missionary?
    Got that missionary zeal?
    Let a stranger change your life
    Hot does it make you feel?
    You want to be a writer
    But you don't know how or when
    Find a quiet place
    Use a humble pen

    You want to talk talk talk about it
    All night squawk about
    The ocean and the atmosphere
    Well I've been away for a long time
    And it looks like a mess around here
    I'll be away for a long time
    So here's how the story goes
    There was an old woman
    Who lived in a shoe
    She was baking a cinnamon pie
    She fell asleep in a washing machine
    Woke up in a hurricane eye
