Frank Black – The Swimmer lyrics

In the wake of his chariot
You swam toward the latitudes
Leaving for happier times
Florida far behind

Trying your best you were
Ignoring the rescuers
You'd gone so very long
You were so very strong

The scene was so tragic
But that was the magic

Will you never drown?
Will you learn to use
Some forgotten part?
Some forgotten part?

Are you going down
Where the ballyhoos
And the tritons are? (x2)

You were so incredible
Finding all the edible
Prize of the sea
Prize of the sea

In the wake of his chariot
You swam toward the latitudes
Leaving for happier times
Florida far behind

In division pelagic
You were choragic

Will you never drown?
Will you learn to use
Some forgotten part?
Some forgotten part?

Are you going down
Where the ballyhoos
And the tritons are? (x3)
