lyrics

I heard in lower Manhattan they are growing gills
New York’s the new Atlantis; a modern R’lyeh
And one day the oceans gonna be our tomb
Bodies parading through the deep cruel sea like Dia de los Muertos
A sunken species it’s a Lovecraftian dream

(Let us drown)
Don’t you know that you’re holding their heads underwater
(Let us drown)
Your children
They watch the rocks in their scotch whiskey melt to nothing
Crawling down their digestive tracts but they haven’t felt what’s coming

The youths are screaming at the great white shark
Who holds dominion over the great white states
Too many big heads think they can levitate
Wet behind the ears from when they defecate

The machine that I drive splutters out hypocrisy
But I sweep that insincerity underneath the rug
Because one day it’s gonna be soaked in by the floods
In the lobby of this complex who’s lower condo is now host to an aquarium
The overwhelming futility’s got me bent
I'm already seeing my peers swim in the school corridors
It’s the individual fish that augments

(Let us drown)
Don't you know that you're holding their heads underwater
(Let us drown)
Your children
Unless you so firmly believe
You can ship them off
On Musk's arc mark II

You find that constantly waves of despondency are creeping up the shores of your mind
I find that constantly waves of despondency are creeping up the shores of my mind
I don’t make you happy I just stop you from being lonely sometimes
You find that constantly waves of despondency are creeping up the shores of your mind

The youths are screaming at the great white shark
Who holds dominion over the great white states
Too many big heads think they can levitate
Wet behind the ears from when they defecate

If Poseidon lay down his trident
No soul would be enlightened despite this
And the pride is building up like cement inside
Their throats so heavy but they're never gonna swallow

They’re creeping up the shores of your mind, they’re creeping up your mind
Now keep them off the shores of your mind, now keep them off your mind
They’re creeping up the shores of your mind, they’re creeping up your mind
Now keep them off the shores of your mind, now keep them off your mind
