would you swim in this water?
would you swim in this water?
infected arms smother us to death
hold on tight..
hold on tight..

until the sun moves around the earth
we will destroy those who come for us

would you drink from this water?
would you drink from this water?
infected eyes are watching over us
hold on tight..
hold on tight..

until the sun moves around the earth
we will destroy those who come for us

it's a cold, wet night
we'll dry ourselves in the morning
this book is not about heroes anymore

until the sun moves around the earth
we will destroy those who come for us

    General CommentThink of the place. If you do this song makes perfect sense.
    It's just about the nice sunny beaches, having a good time and getting away from the 'infected eyes' of the city.
    My only other viewpoint on the lyrics could be based on how poor it is (if it is). The lines of drinking the water are good if it were, as is the infected eyes line.

    It's a beautiful song.

    General CommentIn the first verse, third line the correct lyrics are actually "Infected arms smother us to death." Also, in the second line of the chorus, the correct lyrics are "We will destroy those who come for us". I'll figure out the qauestion marks when I have a little more time.

    I was really quite surprised by this song, it really doesn't deserve to be a b-side. It's certainly strong enough to have made it on to One Day Son, This Will All Be Yours. Amazing song, and it has a slight epic feel about it.

    Looking forward to Be Human. April 20th. Pick it up!

    Song MeaningI think this song was meant to be on the concept album about the end of the world.
    It's about the after effects of war and destruction. It's comparing the beauty of a place like Zihuatanejo with some post-war environment that is corrupted and infected by nuclear war etc.

    Just my opinion.
