Lyrics

This is what life feels like on the ground
I had a brother who was stationed up in
Northern hill country though he never really came home
We drove out east to red river to see the high waters flow
That river was running just searching for an ocean
The freedom we'd never know

That feeling you get when the wind is blowing
Like your whole life is starting over
We made our peace there with a no man's land
Where we come from

Ive been searching for the waves to carry us all
To the ocean we all came from
Where well all be returned
Ive been searching for the waves to carry us all
To the ocean we all came from
Where well all be disolved
Into water

Like the crippled animal running on broken legs that night
His voice was splintering rising and falling
To a fade of i'll never get out
From spokane all the way across montana
Then out to the blood reserve
Black levis jacket knocking them
Tears back on the bank of that river
Underneath september skies inside the us border
He made his peace there
Just after his boots filled up with water

Ive been searching for the waves to carry us all
To the ocean we all came from
Where well all be returned
Ive been searching for waves to carry us all
To the ocean we all came from
Where well all be disolved

The waves will wash away the misquided visions
Glory in a battlefield, a thousand corpses
Ive been searching for the waves to carry us all
To the ocean we all came from
Where well all be disolved
?I am many waves our world?
