At the shoreline in a snowstorm
I was baptized
Like a new born
In the static

There was a voice inside a dream
Said Lift your head up
Come up clean
Into the static

You were a wild thing
pretending to be tame
I was a wild thing
Trapped inside a cage
I wasn’t looking for deliverance
When you walked in from the wilderness
I was yours and you were mine
But Everything returns on time
To the static

Though the circuit board erased
Flashes of memory still remain
In the static

In between the ones and zeros
You will find me if you let go
In the static
