Do you really want to be in a sour milk sea
Gasping for breath
Surrounded by death
Well take my hand and I’ll pull you out
You can make the change
I ain’t got no doubt
Why do you feel so scared?
You never dared to take on me
It never could be
So stop all this and make a stance
You’ll understand if you just take one glance
But for now you’re drowning, drowning, drowning
Drowning in a sour milk sea
Do you really want to keep on drowning, drowning, drowning
In a sour milk sea?
You always had a lot to say to get your way
Now it seems as though you’ve lost your will
Abate yourself and take a bitter pill
See the power that you can hold in your hand
Like the sea that’s constantly eating the land
Like the strongest wind rushing round in the sky
If you use it now, well then you’ll never die
Tell me why you wander round in the dark
And how did you get through life without a single mark?
How did you always know what you would be?
And how did you end up drowning in the sour milk sea?
(REPEAT VERSE 1 & CHORUS)
