Single from the upcoming album All My Secrets

lyrics

Somebody’s drowning tonight
Got his unemployment check
Drinking at home alone with the classifieds

A thousand clicks of the mouse
Drowning in the Internet
Brain cells pinned beneath its unearthly light

He’s asking how do I aspire
What do I do with my desire
I tried so long, I’m sinking now
Is there a way to higher ground, higher ground

Somebody’s drowning tonight
Drowning in a minivan
Beneath some plastic bags from the super Wal-Mart

She’s singing even though
Pop song on the radio
For all its flashing lights is just a wooden heart

She’s asking how do I begin
To find my way to happiness
I’ve tried so long, I’m sinking now
Is there a way to higher ground

Higher ground, higher ground
Is there a way to higher ground
I tried so long, I’m sinking now
Is there a way to higher ground, higher ground

I was drowning tonight
Drowning in the cemetery
I asked the granite graves what would granny say

She’d say lift up your eyes
Look beyond the power lines
Look up to heaven’s face and have a little faith

I asked how do I learn to stand
Upon this earth of sinking sand
When desperate waves of fear abound
Is there a way to higher ground
