Frightened Rabbit – Swim Until You Can't See Land lyrics
I salute at the threshold of the North Sea, and my mind
And I nod to the boredom that drove me here to face the tide
And swim, I swim, oh swim
Dip a toe in the ocean, oh how it hardens, and it numbs
The rest of me is a version of man built to collapse in crumbs
And if I hadn't come now to the coast to disappear
I may have died in a landslide of rocks, and hopes, and fears

So I swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand

Up to my knees now do a wave, do a dive
You see I see my life and for though it's my first and perhaps last time
Let's call me a baptist, call this a drowning of the past
She is there on the shoreline throwing stones at my back

So I swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand

And the water is taller than me,
And the land is a marker alone
All I have is a body adrift in water, salt, and sky

So I swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
Are you a man, are you a bag of sand
