lyrics

swallow, so it all goes away for now
see colors colors colors
see shapes
see yourself
swim to me
following seemingly invisible submarines below this planet's seas
the octopuses are swimming right beside
they look at you strange but you know they support you
they're shoplifting for your motherfucking empire
they're shoplifting from your motherfucking empire
your painted message in a bottle is what motivates me
following seemingly invisible submarines below this planet's seas
I am writing, (escribiendo) and laughing (riendo), and swimming underneath (nadando debajo) Pensacola Beach
the flying sharks are floating right below you
they look at you strange but you know they support you
they're shoplifting for your motherfucking empire
they're shoplifting from your motherfucking empire
