R.E.M. - Undertow lyrics

I know what I wanted
I know what I wanted
I know how I wanted this to be

You go down to the water
Drink down of the water
Walk up off the water, leave it be

But this is not my dream sister
It is cold in heaven
And I'm not sprouting wings

I'm drowning me
I'm drowning me, yeah

Brother can you see those birds?
They don't look to heaven
They don't need religion, they can see

They go down to the water
Drink down on the water
Fly up off the water, leave it be

But this is not my time sister
It is cold in Heaven
And no one's coming after me

I'm drowning (breathing ourselves)
Me (breathing ourselves)
I'm drowning (breathing ourselves)
Me (breathing ourselves) yeah

You know I am tired
Cold and bony tired
Nothing's gonna save me, I can see

I can't say I'm fearful
I can't say I'm not afraid
But I am not resisting, I can see

I don't need a Heaven
I don't need religion
I am in the place where I should be

I am breathing water
I am breathing water
You know a body's got to breathe

I'm drowning (breathing ourselves)
Me (breathing ourselves)
I'm drowning (breathing ourselves)
Me (breathing ourselves)
I'm drowning (breathing ourselves)
Me (breathing ourselves)
