The Earth was too hot,
the air was too thin
I took off my clothes
I took off my skin
I crawled to the sea
that was crawling from me
so I could swim
yeah, so I could swim!

I was sick of the land
I was sick from the heat
I was sick of the sun and the sky and the trees
Over the air that I needed to breathe
When I held with my hands
When I walked on my feet
I took off my clothes
I took off my skin
Started shedding my arms
To start getting my fins
Crawled to the sea that was calling for me
so I could swim, swim the ocean wide
I was only just past the riptide
When I died
When I died

Yeah when I died
My head did swell
I said to myself
Nature should take its sweet time
I was already losing my spine
I was sick with ? and my curtain fell
It's the end of the story I was certain to tell
Watching their faces as they pulled me from the sea
Feeling for the place I thought my gills would be
Busted and wrecked
Justly infected
My body beyond repair
Had no objection sir
My only questions were
Where do I go and will I know when I'm there
But I really couldn't say that I cared
When I died
When I died

Yeah when I died
My head did swell
I said to myself
Nature should take its sweet time
I was already losing, yeah!, my spine

The Earth was too hot,
the air was too thin
I took off my clothes
I took off my skin
I crawled to the sea
that was crawling from me
so I could swim...
yeah, so I could swim!

When I died
When I died

Yeah when I died
My head did swell
I said to myself
Nature should take its sweet time
I was already losing, yeah!, my spine
