A Ship in Port - Radical Face

Written by:Benjamin Cooper


Some say our dreams are a distant road


Down which our hearts would like to go


But I have always stayed in place


Under that old illusion that it's safe


You said the ship in port is the safer one


But it's not the reason it was made


So forgive me if I wander off


And forgive me more if I just stay


Sing another song for the lost ones


We're the ones who need it the most


Every time you run it'll cost ya'


But it doesn't stop us running

If a coward dies a thousand times


Then there's a graveyard in my head


'Cause it took me years to say the words


That you did not even need said


Sing another song for the lost ones


We're the ones that need it the most


Nothin' that you fear is forgotten


It follows you around like


Then everything danced to a stranger tune


And we found our song and we found our truth


And now that we know it's that we always knew


Farewell to the chains we were born into


And as we danced among the ashes of our lives


We laughed it off


And then we burned our tiny worlds and found the ocean

Just beyond those paper walls
