Metric – Enemies of the Ocean Lyrics

Metric Enemies of the Ocean Lyrics

Out under bright silver skies, I accept it
Quick skip to the end, let you go
Still single frames from our life
Stream before my eyes
Like a distant slideshow

How were we to know the river ever would bend?
Split apart at the end
Enemies of the ocean

Seats on the last flight
Sunsets and Moonlight
How were we to know?
Best of the first days
Christmas and birthdays
How were we to know the river ever would bend?
Split apart at the end
Enemies of the ocean
Enemies of the ocean

In time, when the high will subside
Send in the jaws of life
Send in the jaws of life
In time, when the high will subside
Send in the jaws of life
Send in the jaws of life

Charm of the off-chance roulette
Set an opening bet so low, seemed like I’d won
Forge that signature
Lack of conviction combined with commitment so vast
It confounds everyone

How were they to know the river ever would bend?
Split apart at the end
Enemies of the ocean
Enemies of the ocean
Enemies of the ocean

Seats on the last flight
Sunsets and moonlight
How were we to know the river ever would bend?
Split apart at the end
Enemies of the ocean
Enemies of the ocean
Enemies of the ocean
