Face Down in the Arabian Sea

Hear the hammers flick their muscled tails
ascend in lazy figure eights
There is all the time you'll ever need right here
All I do is wait

Let the spoon of God soup fluid hold you warm
warm inside its ladle
Let it cradle all the souls of which you're one
All and none

With a yo ho ho and mani padme hum
East will be the river and west will be the sun

Muhktanantha does the backstroke
he floats, just above the waves
Says that soon I'll have awoken
and not to be afraid

Warm west winds caress your floating
corpse, set a course for bliss
Turn out the lights of old Trivandrum
the world is extinguished

With a yo ho ho and mani padme hum
East will be the river and west will be the sun
Your belly full of shark fin, your belly full of rum
East will be the river and west will be the sun

Blindfolded and flung into the sea
I tried to warn you, but this was meant to be

CHORUS

Hear the hammers flick their muscled tails
ascend in lazy figure eights
There is all the time you'll ever need right here
All I do is wait

Let the spoon of God soup fluid hold you warm
warm inside its ladle
Let it cradle all the souls of which you're one
All and none

CHORUS

Blindfolded and thrown into the sea
I tried to warn you, but this was meant to be
