Over the years you have been hunted
By the men who threw harpoons
And in the long run he will kill you, just to feed the pets we raise
Put the flowers in your vase, and make the lipstick for your face

Over the years you swam the ocean
Following feelings of your own
Now that you are washed up on the shoreline, I can see your body lie
It's a shame you have to die to put the shadow on our eye

Maybe we'll go, maybe we'll disappear
It's not that we don't know, it's just that we don't want to care
Under the bridges, over the foam
Wind on the water, carry me home

Over the years you swam the ocean
Following feelings of your own
And now you are washed up on the shoreline, I, I can see your body lie
It's a shame you have to die to put the shadow on our eye
(Under the bridges, over the foam)
Wind on the water, carry me home
