The Weepies – Antarctica lyrics

Left behind everything I knew
All the colors but bone-white and sky-blue
Hit the continent running
Engines were humming just to break through

Antarctica, my only living relative
Antarctica, I can't wait anymore

Under ice there's a world moving slow
Carnelian stars and the bars down below
Serve only vodka and gin
I try to stay drunk so nobody knows

Antarctica, my only living relative
Antarctica, I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore

And then there's morning
Each one feels like the first one
Ah, morning, so clean, so pure
Nothing so clear, now that I'm here

When I get back to the city
Everything's cluttered and pretty
I won't regret my return
I'll just remember the wind and the snow
And the howling so loud
That it alone drowns out the inside of me

Antarctica, my only living relative
Antarctica, I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore

Please input the reason why these lyrics are bad:


  • u
    I think she mean's shes turned cold on the inside, towards her life/people in her life, which is why she refers to antartica as her "only relative" because she feels that's the only thing that seems to be as cold as she as on the inside, that she can compare herself to, from waiting so long for something she hasn't obtained yet. The waiting "drowns out the inside" of her, and she feels that she can't make sense of anything where she is. Idk, that's the best I got.
