Guster — Jonah lyrics

I was down for the count
Without any real way out
In this new submarine
Like the whale of Jonah's dreams

And what if I should rise up
From several fathoms too
A scar on my soul and a humbling tale of a world
That swallowed me whole
Swallowed me whole

It was harmless enough
While acquiring all this stuff
But the truth in the end
Was a slippery descent
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/guster-jonah-lyrics.html ]
And what if I should rise up
From several fathoms too
A scar on my soul and a humbling tale of a world
That swallowed me whole
Swallowed me whole

I was asleep while the angels were weeping
And racing below me to cushion my fall

And I was just like Jonah
Staring down the whale
A scar on my soul and a humbling tale of a world
That swallowed me whole
Swallowed me whole
Swallowed me whole
It swallowed me whole
