Frightened Rabbit Swim Until You Can’t See Land Lyrics

I salute at the threshold of the North Sea of my mind

And I nod to the boredom that drove me here to face the tide

And I 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 I wade? Do I dive?

The sea has seen my like before, 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 line

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?

Are you a man? Are you a bag of sand?
