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 Commenti can't believe no one commented on this song yet.

    probably some of the most sincere and straighforward lyrics i've readin a long time. the best thing to listen to when you're feeling down - cause it just lets you know that everyone has their highs and lows. i never saw this side of Lars - musically and lyrically. this song is great.

    General CommentMan I can't agree with you more, this is an amazing song. Sounds like it came straight from the heart. Always makes me think about things and how much worse they could be. I need to find the sheet music for the cd

    General CommentPeople have claimed that Lars has become a poser, but he's just having fun telling stories on his solo shit. Some stories are about women, drinking and fighting and this one basically sums up his life and tells us how he became the man he is.
    Long live Rancid members, great song & album.
