lyrics

My man
Muscles from hand to foot
Completely coated in uninterrupted skin
My man
Signals command
The leg to follow orders coming down from headquarters

Why then
Am I in bed?
I guess my man's fallen out with my head

May I direct your attention to the following simile?
You're like the coasts of an ocean
Buried beneath is a submarine cable
Connecting the opposite shores that surround it

My man
How can he stand?
Your fingers could encircle clear around the ankle

My man
Won't walk again
In conflict with express instructions given by the brain

Why can't
The message be sent?
I guess my man's fallen out with my head

When something happens to drag on the floor of the ocean
For instance, an anchor or mooring
The cable can be disrupted, and even be severed
Which halts the transmission across it

There is no way to repair the break.

My man
Muscles from hand to foot
Completely coated in uninterrupted skin

My man
Signals command
The leg to follow orders coming down from headquarters

My man
How can he stand?

My man
Muscles from hand to foot
Completely coated in uninterrupted skin (my man)
My man won't walk again
