Man underwater Lyrics

Man underwater by Bad Examples  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Man underwater Shiver me timbers, blow me away in a dead man抯 hat
Scatter my bones in a Singapore alleyway
I抣l hang my head in a Hong Kong wind and hum a homesick song
A cigarette burning on the tip of my tongue
When the ship pulls into harbor
And the moth burns its wings and falls

Incense burning in the dragonfly room come sit on my knee
Mumble unknown Oriental words
Shadows dance from the candles and the sandalwood taste of skin
So hot tonight the air is as heavy as gauze

When the ship pulls into harbor
And the moth burns its wings and falls
Man underwater -- I抦 here in the belly of the beast
Man underwater -- I抦 choking on an invisible feast

Got rolled last night by a shadow who cut my lip with a stone
Woke in the gutter with blood on my chinnie chin chin
Made it back to the ship and the groan of the hawser pulling at the wharf
Pulled a sliver of glass from my hand

Man underwater -- I抦 here in the belly of the beast
Man underwater -- I抦 choking on an invisible feast

So kiss me again, you know I spent good money for this
I抣l slip into you like the mainland mists at dawn
I抣l crush your lips are as hot and sweet as the milk of my mother抯 love
She抯 dead and denied but you抮e still young and firm

Man underwater -- I抦 here in the belly of the beast
Man underwater -- I抦 choking on an invisible feast
Man underwater -- I抦 here in the belly of the beast
Man underwater -- I抦 choking on an invisible feast
On an invisible feast ... on an invisible feast ... on an invisible feast
