the boat that we're sailing on can't stop in town
'cause the waves that the boat is on won't settle down
if this boat flips over and everyone drowns
well, that's alright with me
that's alright with me

god's green pasture's not heaven to me
i'll spend forever deep down in the sea
singing and swimming and being happy
weightless and painless eternally

one grandpa's ashes and one's underground
one grandma's ashes and one's still around
if this boat flips over and everyone drowns
well, that's alright with me
that's alright with me

god's green pasture's not heaven to me
i'll spend forever deep down in the sea
singing and swimming and being happy
weightless and painless eternally

i don't want to die alone, i am too proud
that you can tell me from the rest of the crowd
if this boat flips over and everyone drowns
well, that's alright with me
that's alright with me

god's green pasture's not heaven to me
i'll spend forever deep down in the sea
singing and swimming and being happy
weightless and painless eternally

the angels and seagulls will ask themselves how
i've got my head in the crow's nest, my feet starboard bough
and the ocean will say: "well, she's one of us now,"
and i will be set free
i will be set free
i will be set free
i will be set free

    General CommentThis is definitely one of my favourite songs in the world, even if she means it in a more metaphorical kind of way, I can completely relate to it, taking it literally, but not in a depressing or suicidal way. Just that I love the sea more than anything, and if I could chose how I'd die, I would drown and spend forever with it, and though I don't believe in god at all, if there was a heaven like the one we're told about I wouldn't want to go there.
    This is the first and only about drowning or the sea that I've ever really related too or felt knew what it was talking about, even if it doesn't mean it literally, it's so beautiful =)
