City How I became the sea Liedtext

June was the lobster shell

I dug by hand

A haven that hid me well

Beneath the sand

The wide windy waves washed in

But I stayed dry

The grave breakers broke again

As I nodded off and sighed

(Chorus)

And then

When the empress ran aground

And my eyes turned blue and green

I heard a gorgeous sound

And that’s when it became a dream

When the sky fell in

When the hurricanes came for me

I could finally crash again

And that’s how I became the sea

I wrenched the engines off

And drank them down

The depths turned the iron soft

As they swiftly drowned

And I brought the oceanside

To its rusty knees

As I felt the even tide

Deep in my shallow dreams

(Chorus)

(When the sky fell in)

When the sky fell in

(When the sky fell in)

When the hurricanes came for me

I could finally crash again

(Crash again)

And that’s how I became the sea

(How I became the sea)

That’s how I became the sea

(How I became the sea)

That’s how I became the sea

(How I became the sea…)

(When the sky fell in

When the hurricanes came for me

I could finally crash again

And that’s how I became the sea)
