Holding on your lazy arms
Get up out of bed
There's vanity, in the holes of which we bled
Your armies have come and gone
Silence on the battle ground
This insurgence, was just enough to see them drown.

You wanna swim with us you gotta get to the water
You wanna swim.

Take me to your mountain
Tear down the waterfall
Its calming me, listen you can hear it call.
So put a coin inside your mouth
And wade out to your knees
You crumble down and give yourself to the sea.

You wanna swim with us you gotta get to the water
You wanna swim.

    General CommentI cannot believe that there are no comments here. Goddamn, this a great fucking song.

    I, personally, take the song's meaning like this – you lost loved ones and the only way to be with them again is to die yourself. "You wanna swim with us, you gotta get to the water," and "So put a coin inside your mouth" (Reminds me of passage across the river Styx into the Underworld, Hades) & "Wade out to your knees / You crumble down and give yourself to the sea".

    That's just my opinion. But it's absolutely one of my favorite songs.

    General CommentNow that you mention it, it does sound a lot like someone passing on, and others wanting to join them.

    A lot like that, I never thought about that before.

    General CommentI always took the like "You wanna swim with us, you gotta get to the water" to be something about a new way of thinking. Like, if you want to argue with or argue for a certain cause, you damn well better be educated enough on whatever you're talking about.
