Swimming in Your Ocean Lyrics

When I'm sampling from your bosom
Sometimes I suffer from distractions like
Why does God cause things like tornadoes and train wrecks?

When I'm swimming in
When I'm swimming in your ocean
Floating aloft on creams
An scented...

    When your brain won't shut off and let you concentrate on the enjoyable experience, but instead has you thinking about random-ass things at inconvenient and inappropriate times

    In this song the writer expresses his gratitude to nature/earth/god.
    He is greatful for all the pleasures that earth has to offer and sometimes gets distracted from the feeling of gratitude, wondering about why tornados and trainwrecks occur.
    He asks earth/nature for understanding the reason for his distractedness. He hopes whatever work he does on earth is fruitful even though all work he does is not good (because of distraction).

    It's about various sexual acts and the distractions many people, if not all people can identify with. One of the thoughts he has is not simply about possibly knocking up some chick and it being a bad thing. It's about the beauty of creating a life. Tis whole album is great, its best to listen to it in order. The issues and subjects this album includes are really quite interesting. The lyrics r honestly some of the best in their own kinda way. Such unusual and even odd words but put together with the sound of his voice and musical style it really is art. Some people think its a joke or don't bother to listen.
