Franz Ferdinand – 40' lyrics

As I glance once upon the foam
40 feet beneath my feet
The coldest calm falls thru the molten veins
Cooling all the blood to slush
Congeals around again

Oh la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la [2x]

Oh 40 feet remain

Salt scales upon my drying arms
Burn my back beneath the sun
I am cold beneath the burning rays
Looking down, looking down
Down, down again

Oh la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la [2x]

40 feet remain
