Lyrics


Sea Of Sin

Sea of sin

I'm swimming in

And I'm taking a dive

My mind's in need

So my body feeds

And it keeps me alive

It gets better and better

As it gets wetter and wetter


Sea of sin

Know where you've been

But I don't care


Sea of sin

Through thick and thin

For better or worse

My mind's in need

So my body feeds

And it quenches my thirst

You look cheaper and cheaper

As we sink deeper and deeper


Sea of sin

Know where you've been

'Cause I've been there


Here under God's sky

His watchful eye

And all of the lies

My consolation prize


Sea of sin

My second skin

My home from home

When I'm in doubt

My hands reach out

And I'm never alone

It gets wetter and wetter

As it gets better and better


Sea of sin

Know where you've been

And I'm prepared

Sea of sin

Know where you've been

Yes I'm aware

Sea of sin

Know where you've been

'Cause I've been there

Sea of sin

Know where you've been

And I don't care

Sea of sin

Know where you've been

And I don't care
