lyrics

I wished I was dead
on such a beautiful morning
that when the sun came up
I was drowned in its glory
but I couldn't hold those horses back
and they dragged me
down their path
and they dragged
me down
their path

it was stop and go
on the 101 freeway
and the men in the front
they didn't know I was breathing
and they rolled me into a room
where they dropped me
in the gloom
where they dropped
me in
the gloom

so I swallowed the words
of the hospital chaplain
who just happened to be
extremely good looking
just one tiny little cut
was enough to open up
the sea
inside
of me
