Wave of Mutilation

Album: Doolittle (1989)
  • Cease to resist, giving my goodbye
    Drive my car into the ocean
    You'll think I'm dead, but I sail away
    On a wave of mutilation
    A wave of mutilation
    Wave of mutilation
    Wave
    Wave

    I've kissed mermaids, rode the El Nino
    Walked the sand with the crustaceans
    Could find my way to Mariana
    On a wave of mutilation
    Wave of mutilation
    Wave of mutilation
    Wave
    Wave

    Wave of mutilation
    Wave of mutilation
    Wave of mutilation
    Wave
