lyrics

The day that I die you can put me in the earth
down in the dirt I'll wiggle with the worms
I want to live as solid as a sword
determined as a soldier headed off to war
and when you find my tentacles washed up on shore
I'll be growing new ones, stronger than before
the day that I'm defeated I will still want more
I'll help you build my grave, it'll look like a door

The day that I die, I'll become a ghost
I'll sleep between the dunes, I'll wander up the coast
I want to live as buoyant as a boat
as alert as the lighthouse guiding your way home
I'm spending all my days drawing charts and maps
no matter where I travel I'll find my way back
so keep your eyes on me and notice where I'm at
I'm a textbook example of how to adapt
