THE Thermals lyrics : "When i died"

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
