The Thermals – When I Died lyrics
The Earth was too hot,
The air was too thin
I took off my clothes
I took off my skin
I crawled to the sea
That was crawling from me
So I could swim...
Yeah, so I could swim!

I was sick of the land
I was sick from the heat
I was sick of the sun and the sky and the trees
Over the air that I needed to breathe
When I held with my hands
When I walked on my feet
I took off my clothes
I took off my skin
Started shedding my arms
To start getting my fins
Crawled to the sea that was calling for me
So I could swim, swim the ocean wide
I was only just past the low tide
When I died
When I died

Yeah when I died
My head did swell
I said to myself
Nature sure took it's sweet time
I was already losing my spine
I was sick with horror when my curtain fell
It's the end of the story I was certain to tell
Watching their faces as they pulled me from the sea
Feeling for the place I thought my gills would be
Busted and wrecked
Justly infected
My body beyond repair
Had no objection sir
My only questions were
Where do I go and will I know when I'm there
But I really couldn't say that I cared
When I died
When I died

Yeah when I died
My head did swell
I said to myself
Nature sure took it's sweet time
I was already losing, yeah!, my spine
I was already losing my spine
But life was short
At least it was short

The Earth was too hot,
The air was too thin
I took off my clothes
I took off my skin
I crawled to the sea
That was crawling from me
So I could swim...
Yeah, so I could swim!

When I died
When I died

Yeah when I died
My head did swell
I said to myself
Nature sure took it's sweet time
I was already losing, yeah!, my spine
