lyrics

Oceanic - South of Heaven
------------------------------------

How did I get this far south of heaven?
How long did I lay upon this forsaken shore?
She offered herself in the form of an apple
Along with a serpent, was asleep in its core

I know, standing here by the sea
I know, she wasn't made for me
I know, tear this rib out of me,
Stick to the poetry,
She's fucking royalty,
Oh

So lucky and proud we stand in being articulate
No words or metaphors will crush any bones
I wish I was dumb, I wish that I was illiterate
What I wouldn't do if I could just make her moan

I won't, I'll never hold a grudge
I won't – who am I to judge?
I won't ever try anything
Nothing but play and sing
Fit for a queen and king
Oh

Try to be bad
Try to be bad
Try to be bad
Try to

I know, standing here by the sea
I know, she wasn't made for me
I know, tear this rib out of me
Stick to the poetry
She's fucking royalty
Oh

I know, she's making fun of me
I'll show her what it means to me
Oh no, she had no right to flee
I, too, need to be free
Just gotta find the key
Oh
