swim until you can’t see land lyrics – frightened rabbit

“swim until you can’t see land”

i salute at the threshold of the north sea of my mind
and i nod to the boredom that drove me here to face the tide
and i swim, i swim, oh swim

dip a toe in the ocean, oh how it hardens and it numbs
the rest of me is a version of man built to collapse in crumbs
and if i hadn’t come now to the coast to disappear
i may have died in a landslide of rocks and hopes and fears

so i swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?

swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?

up to my knees now
do i wade? do i dive?
the sea has seen my like before, though it’s my first and perhaps last time
let’s call me a baptist, call this a drowning of the past
she is there on the sh*r*line throwing stones at my back

so i swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?

swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?

and the water is taller than me
and the land is a marker line
all i have is a body adrift in water, salt and sky

so i swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?

swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?

swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
swim until you can’t see land
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?

are you a man? are you a bag of sand?
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?

are you a man? are you a bag of sand?
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?
are you a man? are you a bag of sand?
