lyrics

I don't know what you're thinking, when I look into your eyes,
Everything you say to me, well it comes as no surprise.

I know what you're thinking now, I read you like a book.

You're thinking how, to do away with me,
Lace up my cement shoes, and then throw me in the sea.

And so you want me to drown, well you can't cut any corners this time.

I don't wanna die, your gruesome death,
I never heard, such a sordid tale before,
Sonny Gritts! Just another victim of,
Davy Jones' locker, his home town is Atlantis now.

Life beneath the sea, it seems so easy,
Only in, the comics and magazines.

My eyes are falling shut, well I guess that my 9 lives are up.

I don't wanna die, your gruesome death,
I never heard, such a sordid tale before,
Sonny Gritts! Just another victim of,
Davy Jones' locker, his home town is Atlantis now.

Just another victim of, Davy Jones' locker,
His home town is Atlantis now.
Just another victim of, Davy Jones' locker,
His home town is Atlantis now.
Just another victim of, Davy Jones' locker,
His home town is Atlantis now!

I don't wanna die, your gruesome death,
I never heard, such a sordid tale before,
Sonny Gritts! Just another victim of,
Davy Jones' locker, his home town is Atlantis now.
