Why the Sea Is Salt

from by The Fishermen & the Priestess

/

about

A song about cycles, letting go, and being reborn.

lyrics

Listen, this is how it goes:
First comes the river
To the ocean it flows

Then the sun comes out to shine
Rising to the skies
Leaving it all behind

There's a mill deep down the ocean
Grinding salt and bones
Will you stay where it's dark
Revolving all alone?

Listen, this is all I know:
First you are the river
To the ocean you flow

Then the sun comes out to shine
You're raised into the skies
Leaving the pain behind

You once had a brother
Who promised you a lamb
Is the path you choose forgiveness
Are you the bigger man?

There are castles in the skies
And the rain
Starts to pour

When it's done
Let it shine
Let it shine
Let it shine
