"Ocean" as written by and Will Gregory Alison Elizabeth Goldfrapp....
I've lost the will to
I've lost my way
I've lost this ocean
I poisoned me

People collector
People collector
I'm on the move
For you

Oh, and I
Wouldn't lie
Wanna be your

I buried bones, I borrowed skin
To save me from the hell I'm in
Your fantasy
And every time I think of you
I see the dark, I hear their hooves
They're coming
They're coming for you

I've lost the will to
I've lost my way
I've lost this ocean
I poisoned me

People collector
People collector
I'm on the move
For you

Oh, and I
Wouldn't lie
Wanna be your

I buried bones, I borrowed skin
To save me from the hell I'm in
Your fantasy
And every time I think of you
I see the dark, I hear their hooves
They're coming
They're coming for you

    My InterpretationI wrote a fairly lengthy blog post about this track - mostly related to the overall superb programming. However I also interpreted the lyrics in a rather interesting way. Here's the excerpt of my interpretation:

    Alison is known for using animals to provide additional imagery in her lyrics - sometimes as proxies for individuals with specific characteristics. She references horses often in a variety of contexts and uses equine imagery in live performances via costumes. In this instance, due to the overall brooding and relentless nature of “Ocean”, I can’t help but think of the Nazgûl - colloquially referred to as ‘Ringwraiths’, ‘Dark Riders’ or ‘the Nine’ - from J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium. There’s nothing else here that suggests Tolkien influence whatsoever, so it’s probably just me taking a few leaps. However, given this interpretation, one could continue making connections when these lyrics are viewed from the perspective of Samwise and his relationship with Frodo during their journey through The Lord of the Rings. In which case, despite Samwise’s overall emotional strength, nearly every line would pertain to his plight and relationship with Frodo.
