We salute at the threshold of the North Sea in my mind
And a nod to the boredom that drove me here to face the tide and swim

/ verse riff / /

(Whoaaaa) I swim (Whoaaa) oh swim (Whoaaa)

/ bridge riff x 4 /

Dip the toe in the ocean. Oh how it hardens and it numbs.
And the rest of me is a version of man built to collapse into crumbs

And if I hadn't come down to the coast to disappear
I may have died in a land-slide of the rocks, the hopes and fears.

{refrain}
So 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 or are you a bag of sand?

/ D G / / / A G /

{repeat}

Up to my knees now, do I wait? 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 the drowning of the past
She's there on the shoreline, throwing stones at my back

{refrain} x2

Now the water's taller than me, and the land is a marker line
All I am is a body adrift in water, salt and sky

/ D G / /

{refrain} x2
