The Mountain Goats – Tidal Wave Lyrics

Tidal Wave Lyrics – The Mountain Goats

It’s not the barnacles that do all the damage
Figure this out too late
It’s not the destination that makes the difference
It’s the freight

Everything becomes a blur from six feet away
Get used to this
Every card ever turned over remains in place
Get used to this

Not every wave is a tidal wave
Not every wave is a tidal wave

It’s not the mutiny that gets written down in the diary
It’s the manifest
Forgotten cargo in obsolete measurements
Anybody’s guess

Even the proud, even the very proud
Probably die on their knees
Twin masts out on the open seas
Mistaken for trees

Not every wave is a tidal wave
Not every wave is a tidal wave
