lyrics
Currents Collide
A. Brown 2018

Turbines motionless
High above the soybean oceans of the southwest
And it's hard to believe that last night the twister hit
The twister hit
It's hard to believe that last night the twister hit

Undertow off the island tip
Up from Ohio he was an All-American kid
Where the currents collide that's where the lake unzips
It pulls and it rips
Where the currents collide that's where the lake unzips

Some of us are here to drink
Some of us are here to listen to a dying man sing
A dying man sing
We're all drowning in something
Quickly something familiar
Quickly follow the unknown

And the son of our parent's prime minister
Is getting called out right from the stage
He's gotta make that change
It's time to make that change

Some of us are here to drink
Some of us are here to listen to a dying man sing
A dying man sing

Shadows in the fading light
Spirals dance across endless sheets of white
It's a big blank page what do you want to write?
What are you going to write?
