Well the ocean is a monster
And the waves are a killer
Swallowed my baby whole

Now her tombstone is a coral reef
Under shifting sand my love is buried deep
But never as deep as the beauty in her soul
The goddamn thing swallowed my baby whole

I used to smoke mother nature
Now tell me who is burning who
It's here my love was lost
In sunlit wonder she was tossed
All for black sea teeth to chew

I used to smoke mother nature
Now tell me who is burning who
I'm gonna build a boat
A wooden tomb to float
Just long enough -- I'm gonna sink it where my baby lies
