Entertainment For The Braindead - Hydrophobia lyrics

I've always liked to watch the sea,
its sight and sound are soothing me,
but I always preferred to keep a safe distance.
For if I drew nearer, the waves would swallow me
and pull my body down, down, down to the ground.
This heavy heart would make me sink like a stone and drown.

These waters are beautiful
but oh, so unpredictable
and I'm not sure if the welters
are willing to carry me
These waters are beautiful
but presumably lethal

And I am too afraid to try
(for I am too afraid...)

'You don't have to be afraid', you said,
'Just commit yourself to the element of force
It will lift you up
It will hold your head above the waves'
'But it's dragging me down', I said,
'I feel it dragging me down, I will drown, I will drown!
It won't lift me up and you can't hold me
I am certainly bound to go down!'

These waters are beautiful
But oh, so unpredictable
I'm not sure if the welters
Are willing to carry me
These waters are beautiful
But presumably lethal
And I am too afraid to try
(For I am too afraid to die...)

Then you pushed me into the water
And I struggled and furiously screamed
Waiting for the waves to break above my head
And take me down with them

But as I grew tired my movements got slower
And I realized that my body was peacefully floating
On the silent sea
That there were no billows rolling over me
And I could devote myself so trustingly...
'Cause these waters would carry me

I've always liked to watch the sea,
its sight and sound are soothing me,
but I always preferred to keep a safe distance

But now I know I can swim
Now I know I can
Now I know I can swim

These waters are beautiful...
[repeat]
