letra de the man who sailed around his soul - xtc

Loading...

the man who sailed around his soul
from east to west, from pole to pole
with ego as his drunken captain
greed, the mutineer, had trapped all reason in the hold

the man who walked across his heart
who took no comp-ss, guide or chart
to rope and tar his blood congealed
when he found his self revealed, ugly and cold

and the sirens that sing
by your nose with its ring
they’ll drag you in
for your sins

now, he sits all alone
and it’s no place like home
it’s empty skin
a bag to keep life’s souvenirs in

the man who sailed around his soul
the man who sailed around his soul

the man who sailed around his soul
came back again to find a hole
where once he thought comp-ssion and the truth
had laid to warm his freezing carc-ss on return

the man who walked across his heart
was doomed to journey to the start
of every love affair he’d broken
all the lies he’d ever spoken, tattooed on his arm

and the jellyfish stings
even angels with wings
who look too deep
and dare to peep

now, he sits all alone
knowing flesh, blood and bone
is everything
he found the treasure he’d been seeking

the man who sailed around his soul
the man who sailed around his soul
the man who sailed around his soul

the man who sailed around his soul
the man who sailed around his soul
the man who sailed around his soul
