Instead of pulling over she looked up at the sky
For 47 minutes she taught them how to drive
She sped into the ocean and swam a half a mile
No reason she could think of but something deep inside
You want to see I’ll show you
I’ll show you a good time
I’ll take you where the music is so loud
You’ll feel it in your shoulders
Your voice will fade away
You’re staking out the exits here but everything’s okay

The voice of god says, “Die.”
The head under the water asks, “Why?”

And I stood there and watched it all
Started to give in
Tremors in my hands
I said it in my mind
I spoke the words out loud
My legs began to shake
Now I run against the crowd

We talk a mile a minute
Desperate just to talk
I take you out for dinner
We’re speechless while we walk
We listen to the radio and no one sleeps alone
We’re crawling on our stomachs
A military zone

Out in the sun we sail from the coast
Knowing that we’re sinking we sail on.
