June was the lobster shell
I dug by hand, a haven that hid me well
Beneath the sand
The white windy waves washed in
But I stayed dry
The great breakers broke again
'Cause I'm on and off inside
And then, when the empress run aground
And my eyes turned blue and green
I heard a gorgeous sound
And that's when it became a dream
When the sky fell in
When the hurricanes came for me
I could finally crash again
And that's how I became the sea
I wrenched the engines off
And dragged them down
The depths turned the iron soft
As they swiftly drowned
And I brought the ocean side
To its rusty knees

As I felt the even tide
Deep in my shallow dreams
And then, when the empress run aground
And my eyes turned blue and green
I heard a gorgeous sound
And that's when it became a dream
When the sky fell in
When the hurricanes came for me
I could finally crash again
And that's how I became the sea
(When the sky fell in)
When the sky fell in
(When the sky fell in)
When the hurricanes came for me
I could finally crash again
And that's how I became the sea
That's how I became the sea
That's how I became the sea
