Safe and Sound

Late nights, early mornings
Waves crash down and down
There are no warnings
No stop sign, no red lights
Am I safe and sound?

Light knocks, scratched knees
No pain felt they're numb
Pain is felt, the knocks grow stronger
A slow, steady drum

Let the flood, let it spread
Don't sink, my dear
It's getting to my head
Scratch the sand
Don't let it stop you- fear

Latch on, it pleads to me
This fight is a war
I have bled my share
Defeated, on the floor

Last repeat, one after another
Waves crash down and down
There are no warnings
No stop sign, no red lights
Am I safe and sound?
