My navigator, well she is obliged,
And she'd promise me, she'd stay by my side.
She's the only one who sees this ship is going down,
And she's the only one, who's not afraid to, she's not afraid to drown.

Well they're pretty on the outside, but they're prettier when pried,
Oh this little oyster, she's got nothing to hide, no no.
And when the ship is pulling, and the air is coming down,
She'll be the only one, who's not afraid to, she's not afraid to drown.

No, she's not afraid to drown,
Oh no, she's not afraid, of going down.

And she's going down...

Blood shot my heart,
Right out of my head.
I'll catch mine, on the way down,
And I'll catch yours, on the way out,
And there's no telling what I'll do.

He said, this time, you better listen to me girl,
Cause I know, whats best for you.
And whatever you do,
Just don't try, to be brave.

You couldn't save yourself, even if you wanted to,
You couldn't save yourself, even if you tried.

Blood shot my heart,
Right out of my head.
And it sent me, it sent me,
Spinning, it sent me, spinning.

And I said, siren, why aren't you singing,
I said, siren, why aren't you singing.
I said siren, Why aren't you singing,
I said siren, Why aren't you singing.

And I remember the seahorses,
I remembered seahorses,
I remembered seahorses.

He said this time, you better listen to me girl,
Cause I know, what's best for you.
And whatever you do,
Just don't try, to be brave.

He said this time, you better listen to me girl,
Cause I know, what's best for you,
And whatever you do, just don't try, to be brave.
No, no, cause you couldn't save yourself, even if you wanted to,
No you couldn't save yourself, even if you tried.

They're pretty on the outside, but they're prettier when pried,
Oh this little oyster she's got nothing to hide no no.
And when the ship is pulling, and the air is coming down,
She'll be the only one who's not afraid to, she's not afraid to drown.

No piano, tied-to-toe, no cracks in the wood,
She wouldn't save herself, even if she could.
She's happy in her watery grave, I guess,
She didn't wanna be saved, that day.
