Laura Stevenson – Sink, Swim lyrics
Oh California, I tried to warn ya
The earth is gonna quake before ya
You'll be real sorry but it won't be sorry
The dirt is gonna crack and split you in two
Then you'll be halved and you'll have to
Find a match that fit your guts
It hurts so much but it keeps your blood in

Watch out they'll swarm ya
The bees that were born
Way too early, wakened by the swirling
Cover your nose up, they'll fill all your holes
They will weigh you down with honeycombs
And though, it'll be your one chance to be sweet
You'll be a thankless home for ungrateful drones
Who will churn your bones to butter

And you're not coming home
No you've got plenty more in you don't ya
So please go easy and breathe some clean air for me

Oh California, I hate to inform ya
Now waves are crashing, coming toward ya
Soaking your pals and dragging them out
You're the only straggler grabbing onto the shore
But all the salt's pooled in your ears
It's all your fault I tell ya, listen will ya
Can't you hear me baby?

And you're not coming home
No you've got plenty more in you don't ya?
So please go easy and breathe some clean air for me
And if I'd only known, I'd have dragged you
And pulled you undertow if I had to
But I'm too lazy and you're too stubborn baby
