Floating in the ocean we were drifting all alone
(?)
I was looking for the shore
(?)
The answer must be here
Just relax don't look back
You'll only make things worse
The answer must be here
The answer must be here

Crawling on the water just because he couldn't swim
I don't know how I got here but I'm glad I came
Who do you answer to?
Who do you answer to?

He turned the water into wine
He drank the ocean dry
He asked for a cigarette
He turned the water into wine
He drank the ocean dry
He asked for a cigarette, like any other guy

You can't smoke your just a baby
It will make you sick, keep you from breathing
You cant swim your just a baby
Splashing on the surface, sinking in the deep end
You cant drink your just a baby
It will keep you sick, keep you from growing

He turned the water into wine
We drank the ocean dry
He asked for a cigarette like any other guy

(?) done this before
(?)
(?)
(?)
(?) away from making bad decisions
(?) baby Jesus
Lies aren't what we thought they'd be
I'm fine today

    General Commentwell here's there real deal

    Floating in the ocean we were drifting all alone
    he was looking to the sky for help
    I was looking for the shore
    he gave no apology as sharks came circling in
    the answer must be here,
    just relax now don't look back you'll only make things worse,

    the answer must be here
    the answer must be here

    Crawling on the water just because he couldn't swim
    I don't know how I got here but I'm glad I came
    Who do you answer to?
    Who do you answer to?

    He turned the water into wine
    We drank the ocean dry
    He asked me for a cigarette
    He turned the water into wine
    We drank the ocean dry
    He asked me for a cigarette, like any other guy

    You can't smoke your just a baby
    It'll make you sick, keep you from breathing
    You cant swim your just a baby
    Splashing on the surface, sinking in the deep end
    You cant drink your just a baby
    It will make you sick, keep you from growing

    He turned the water into wine
    We drank the ocean dry
    He asked for a cigarette like any other guy

    HE SAID, it's almost as i've done this before...
    WALKING all the ay back home we pass..
    DEAD FISH carcasses with awful stenches..
    I DON'T know how i got here but i'm content...
    TO KEEP YOU, away from making bad decisions..
    AFTER all you're just a baby jesus,
    CONTENT, our lives aren't what we thought they'd be..
    i'm fine today

    General CommentI've got:

    Ohhh....Ohhh...Ohhh...

    Just relax don't look back

    The answer must be here

    General Commentmedia's lyrics are good. i hear a few slight differences at the end, all in all solid song

    HE SAID! Its almost as if I've done this before
    WALKING! All the way back home we pass
    DANCING! Carcasses with awful stenches
    IVE GOT! oh how ive got here but i cant take it
    KEEP YOU! away from making bad decisions
    (?) ! Oh you're just a baby Jesus
    Lies aren't what we thought they'd be

    General CommentHere's what I've got:

    Floating in the ocean we were tripping all alone
    He was looking to the sky pullout
    I was looking for the shore
    Even now (I'm already dead) the sharks came circling in
    The answer must be here
    Just relax now - don't look back
    You'll only make things worse
    The answer must be here
    The answer must be here

    Crawling on the water just because he couldn't swim
    I don't know how I got here but I'm glad I came
    Who do you answer to?
    Who do you answer to?

    He turned the water into wine
    He drank the ocean dry
    He asked me for a cigarette
    He turned the water into wine
    He drank the ocean dry
    He asked me for a cigarette, like any other guy

    You can't smoke you're just a baby
    It will make you sick, keep you from breathing
    You cant swim you're just a baby
    Splashing on the surface, sinking in the deep end
    You cant drink you're just a baby
    It will make you sick, keep you from growing

    He turned the water into wine
    We drank the ocean dry
    He asked me for a cigarette like any other guy

    HE SAID! Its almost as if I've done this before
    WALKING! All the way back home we pass
    DANCING! Carcasses with awful stitches
    I'VE GOT! Oh how I've got here but i cant take
    KEEP YOU! own way from making bad decisions
    BACK OUT! Oh you're just a baby Jesus
    THE DEAD! Lies aren't what we thought they'd be
    I'm fine today

    General Commenti like adiverdescends interpretation of "DANCING carcasses with awful stenches" it makes a tad bit more sense than stitches. I also believe david is having a conversation with jesus at the end of the song, jesus says, "Oh I've got to keep you away from making bad decisions" and david replies, "oh you're just a baby, jesus!" ;;; Consequently, the same applies if you look at it like jesus is spiteful and tells david to keep his own ways from making bad decisions (which is nothing, considering hes smoking and swimming) and david calls him a baby :p

    General Commentexact words help a lot, but I'd at least like to understand the gist of this song. Maybe I should take the time to do it myself...

    or not...
