how i became the sea lyrics – owl city

“how i became the sea”

june was the lobster sh*ll
i dug by hand
a haven that hid me well
beneath the sand
the wide windy waves washed in
but i stayed dry
the great breakers broke again
as i nodded off inside

and then
when the empress ran aground
and my eyes turned blue and green
i heard a gorgeous sound
and that’s when it became a dream

when the sky fell in
when the hurricanes came for me
i could finally crash again
and that’s how i became the sea

i wrenched the engines off
and drank them down
the depths turned the iron soft
as they swiftly drowned
and i brought the ocean side
to its rusty knees
as i felt the even tide
deep in my shallow dreams

and then
when the empress ran aground
and my eyes turned blue and green
i heard a gorgeous sound
and that’s when it became a dream
when the sky fell in
when the hurricanes came for me
i could finally crash again
and that’s how i became the sea

when the sky fell in
(when the sky fell in)
(when the sky fell in)
when the hurricanes came for me
i could finally crash again
and that’s how i became the sea
(how i became the sea)
that’s how i became the sea
(how i became the sea)
that’s how i became the sea
(how i became the sea)
(how i became the sea)

(when the sky fell in)
(when the hurricanes came for me)
(i could finally crash again)
(and that’s how i became the sea)

(how i became the sea)
