Well how do you do
My name is Lars
I'm from Cambell california
You might know that by now
I'm of danish decent
For that I'm proud
See my father was a nomad
I haven't seen him for awhile
Lost a brother
Still got a mother I ain't motherless
For some of you out there
I know that might be hard to believe
See I've been up and I've been down
I've smiled and I've frowned
I've made a every gesture
That a young man can steal
And I know that I'm married to the sea
Well I know I'm married to the sea
You see some people are locked down man
And some are free
But I know that I'm married to the sea

Well I've been rich I've been poor
Spend it all on whores
Got married and divorce to the girl that's next door
Stolen fast cars dated pop stars
Been around the world
Slept with underage women
Turned tricks for a thrill
Tried sucide but didn't die
Well I'm here to tell
I don't know a heaven
But I've made peace with hell
Been shot at been stabbed
Been beatin up real bad
Survived everything without being killed

and I know I'm married to the sea
And I know I'm married to the sea
Some people are locked down
Some are free
And I know I'm married to the sea

slept in fancy hotels eaten from garbage cans
Down every highway I grew into a man
See my best friend die right before my eyes
Aborted a baby and shed on my tears
Been strung out on pills slammed my share of dope yea
I drank all your booze man and I snorted your coke
I've been loved I've been hated
To me its all the same
Embraced by a lover your cursing my name

and I know I'm married to the sea
And I know I'm married to the sea
Some people are locked down man
And some are free
And I know I'm married to the sea

and I know I'm married to the sea
And I know I'm married to the sea
Some people are locked down sugar
And some are free
And I know I'm married to the sea

I'm married to the sea
You see the great big ocean
Well that's for me
Sorry ladies I'm married to the sea
I'm married to the sea
I'm married to the sea

but I'm free yea I'm free

    General Commenthey, that law is differant now. the law now is if EITHER of the two people are involved is underage, its considered rape by law - statutory. it goes for if both are underage.

    General CommentIt depends on what the term "under age women" entails. In Iowa (and other places), as long as the girl consents, sex is legal. In Hawaii, an outrageous 14 years old is legal. Still, it's not something most people would be proud of.

    I added this song, probably seconds after GhostChe, but mine was formatted much better.

    General CommentI think it is talking about older days u know vikings where it was custom for them to sleep with girls that we would consider underage now adays but i could be wrong i mean it could have a double standard or maybe vikings who were in there day consider mean and horrible maybe he sees himself as a bad person

    General CommentThis is just Lars. Vikings were nomads on the sea, most people know that. He's saying he doesn't feel at home if he's not on the sea. He's saying he's done all of these things in his life, and if you don't like it, shut your mouth. Skunxlr, I can drink to that.

    General Commentthats stupid. if you wanna have sex it shouldnt matter at all what age you are as long as you know what you are doing, you want to do it and you know the risks.

    General CommentI like this song. Except for the part where he admits he's a statutory rapist

    ("slept with underage women")
