lyrics

grandmother gets dressed up like a wolf
she says the only religion to be true
is the smell of the sea and the sound of the wind
when you take a deep breath and let the whole world
rush on in

you build them up
and you break them down
with all those bright ideas you could build a bustling town

or you could cool your mind from building empires in the sky
just take a deep breath and let the whole world
rush on by

baba baba
it’s a wide open sky

spiraling down like an ammonite
made of tides and twilight
crushed like a shell beneath your step
born again from your lips

grandmother gets dressed up like a wolf
she says the thing that always brings me back to you
is the smell of the sea and the sound of the wind
when i take a deep breath and let the whole world
rush on in

baba baba
it’s a wide open sky
