lirik lagu death by numbers – noah and the whale

as our rotting bodies
pay back the earth its love
in a vile fleshy matter
we’ll crumble into dust
i’ll be picked up by the wind
and blown into strangers eyes
defuse into their bodies
and their tears when they cry
’til i have 5000 people carry me
’til i have 5000 people carry me

oscar and lucy
will buy themselves a coffin
oh a single box of wood
that, together, they will rot in
and their bodies will decay
and combine with one another
oh a single act of love
far greater than any other
and in death they’ll leave just a part of them
oh in death they’ll leave one part of them

oh when i’m minerals in the soil
i’ll diffuse into a tree
it’ll have 5000 brances
which will have 5000 leaves
and i’ll be in every one
oh and when a leaf blows free
i will land upon the earth
and grow another tree
’til i have 5000 trees made of me
’til there are 5000 trees made of me

when darkness surrounds me
oh when darkness surrounds me
oh when darkness is all i can see
when darkness surrounds me
oh when darkness surrounds me
oh when darkness is all i can see
when darkness surrounds me
oh when darkness surrounds me
oh when darkness is all i can see
when darkness surrounds me
oh when darkness surrounds me
oh when darkness is all i can see

i will have 5000 bodies
i will have 5000 trees
which will have 5000 branches
which will have 5000 leaves
and i will have 5000 lovers
and i’ll have 5000 bees
made of me
