lyrics

you yelled, " the lake's alive! "
you took off my sweater in the shade
you slapped my ass and said
" babe, this is why we were made "
are you gonna swim or are you gonna parade?
I haven't come this far in my father's car to behave.

you yelled, " the last one in is done
and will sink to their grave!"
as her english shoes became barracudas
under the waves
are you gonna swim or are you gonna parade?
I haven't stripped my clothes,
it's such a useful pose to behave

The lights are on your side
And our hands are hoping for a place to slide

I'm not going back dear, to the volvo
(Niagra Falls and water walls don't keep me up)
where our clothes are dry and lonely
( Leviathan, don't breath us in and our great lakes love)
we can build us an island
out of airplane wreckage like a stranded family

Our naked frames are meant to be
delivered and saved
so if I asked to touch
would you pounce on your chest and obey
are you gonna swoon or are you gonna parade?
I havent swam this far since 1994 to behave

The lights are on your side
And our hands are hoping for a place to slide

I'm not going back dear, to the volvo
(Niagra Falls and water walls don't keep me up)
where our clothes are dry and lonely
( Leviathan, don't breath us in and our great lakes love)
we can build us an island
out of airplane wreckage like a stranded family

Niagra Falls and water walls don't keep me up
Leviathan, don't breath us in and our great lakes love
Niagra Falls and water walls don't keep me up
Leviathan, don't breath us in and our great lakes love
