Out Over the Atlantic

Under the boardwalk was almost totally black. Luckily, we have cameras that can sometimes capture more than our eyes. This is looking straight out over the Atlantic.

“The Atlantic was born today, and I’ll tell you how

The clouds above opened up and let it out

I was standing on the surface of a perforated sphere

When the water filled every hole

And thousands upon thousands made an ocean

Making islands where no islands should go (oh no)

Most people were overjoyed; they took to their boats

I thought it less like a lake and more like a moat

The rhythm of my footsteps crossing flatlands to your

Door have been silenced forevermore

And the distance is quite simply much to far for me to row;

It seems farther than ever before (oh no)” – Death Cab For Cutie
