The Whole World Tucked Away

from by Low Island



We climb in our shells
And wander the beach
It’s ok, it’s ok to feel lonely

And get swallowed up, and steal away
And tell no one, no not a soul where we lie

Unseen, unknown
You know who I am but don’t know me at all
You can’t think, feel touch
You’re all I need but don’t give me enough

On the phone, at night
Sometimes you laugh
And sometimes you cry
All this other life
Keeps you up in a pool of blue light

The whole world tucked away
Just like daylight, it keeps everyone awake

Overcome, overcome
Time to choose
It’s a drug, it’s a drug that you can’t refuse

Sold as fun, sold as yours
Nothing to lose
It’s a drug, it’s a drug that you can’t refuse
