    RED
    Dawn in crimson, just like the tide
    Solid ocean, shore's behind
    Head for the edge of the world when you finally push the boat out
    Knowing only what you know now

    And all that you learn you’ll have to forget - forget
    Painting it over again and again - red, red!
    See for yourself

    Sunken treasures - you buried them deep
    Currents unseen take you down, taking you down
    Taking you down, down, down...
    Belly feels awful weak
    You only see what you see now

    And all that you learn you’ll have to forget - painting it red!

    With the blood ink in your veins
    Take those sails and paint them red
    No escape from the rise and the fall of the waves
    For the unwritten days and those days you cannot change
    On the journey from womb to the grave, many things to forgive and forget
    Ah heartache! No need to regret
    But there are some things in this life that are heartache - red!

    And all that you learn you’ll have to forget - never comes easy
    Painting it over again and again - red, red!

    They were patiently waiting for her to arrive
    Finally she came ashore, late to her own life

    We'll cross that when we come to it - brace yourself
    We'll cross that when we come to it
    We’ll come to it - brace yourself
