lyrics

The staircase has long since collapsed
All of the secrets hidden in the attic
slowly dissolve in the silt
until none of it matters anymore.

Dad tried hard to hold back the water
Sank a barge, piled sandbags on sandbags
but we knew, we all saw the fear in his eyes

The last house on Holland island is slipping under
and taking our history with it
but this is not our home.
That disappeared years ago

All these islands will sink
All these houses will fall
We'll build new homes anyway
