Ship My Body Home

This song is by Ben Lee and appears on the album Breathing Tornados (1998) and on the album Consult Your Electric Minions (1998).

Coming out of Sydney
Country music playing
Cursing all of them who stayed

In the city
I own this city
Get drunker than a poet who just got paid

And I'm finally hoping
That I'll be torn open
So that every word I say is true

The words I'm shouting
While I work it out
In case trouble takes me and I don't make it through

You have to ship my body home
Ship my body home
All I ever wanted was to finish what I started
But there's no way I could do it on my own
You have to ship my body home

Driving through the mountains
Cutting through the night time
Stopping now and then to wonder why

I left the city
The quiet city
I killed its memory just to watch it die

And I'm finally hoping
That I'll be torn open
So that every word I say is true

The words you're hearing
While I make it clear
In case trouble takes me and I don't make it through

You have to ship my body home
Ship my body home
All I ever wanted was to finish what I started
But there's no way I could do it on my own
You have to ship my body
Ship my body
Ship my body
All I ever wanted was to finish what I started
So ship my body
All I ever wanted was to finish what I started
So ship my body
All I ever wanted was
All I ever wanted was
All I ever wanted once I finished what I started
Was to ship my body home
