​Down Into The Sea

This song is by Theo Bard and appears on the album The Springtime Fool (2012).

As the setting sun is falling down, down away from me
And the land I place my feet upon is slipping under me
Every storm, every step turns the solid land to grief,
And it's falling down, falling down, down into the sea

Whole villages are falling down, down away from me
See the chimney pots and gutters on the beach in misery
And the mud it slides so sticky in the liquid certainty
That it's falling down. falling down, down into the sea

Fall down, high ground, fall down so low
Fall down, fall down, so certain sad and slow
And if you try to stand defiant in the sand so slippery
You'll be falling down, down into the sea

And the roads that once were trusted. now there's nowhere left to lead
Like the veins of an open wound. this land's an amputee
And the waves they slice off livelihoods with salt to stop the bleed
But blood is falling down. falling down. down into the sea

Fall down, high ground...
But my dreams they are not falling down, down away from me
No they harden into aims and goals which still I cannot see,
I fight for them with every breath and fight for family
Until I'm falling down, falling down, down into the sea

Fall down, high ground...
