I was biting the time zone,
And we embellish the banks of our bloodstreams,
And threw caution to the colourful
Then we fell asleep in the car,
Until the bumps woke me up in your grip
And the tide took me to your mouth,
And then swept me back down to your palms

It's them that put me inside the reminder
That yours is the only ocean,
(Yours Is the only ocean)
That I wanna swing from,
Yours is the only ocean,
That I wanna hang on

I've got this ego mechanic,
She's always trying to give me vitamins
Oh she'd be frightened of your reflection,
I preferred her as a cartoon
If I could be someone else for a week,
I'd spend it chasing after you,
Cos she's not shattering my attitude,
No matter how she folds the potion

Yours is the only ocean,
That I wanna swing from,
Yours is the only ocean,
That I wanna hang on to
I'm swinging on
Yours is the only ocean,
Yours is the only ocean,
Yours is the only ocean,
Yours is the only ocean

Potion approaching, shield your eyes,
Potion approaching, visualize,
Holding a token, swollen in size,
Potion approaching, shield your eyes

Oh but if we're gonna escape though,
We really ought to think it through,
Would you like me to build you a go kart?

    I think potion approaching is about fancying a girl and getting to know her but knowing she has a dark side and being cautious but still sort of being dragged towards the option of love, almost domestic.
