lyrics

1am, they took away my girl
she should be nestled in her covers
the aftermath, broken fan blade spinning
the thick of august heat sweats the label off my beer

I’m on a sinking ship
and I’m the one
with a drill to the hull

I reach at night, I find an empty bed
murmurs carry from your study
in the morning you’ll sunshine her facts again
I kneel on slippered feet with an ear upon your door

I’m on a sinking ship
and I’m the one
with a drill to the hull

I’ll play my turn
a hand that’s full of nothing
every move
is sure to damage something
the ocean churns
the cliffs ahead are listing
the wheel won’t turn
now it’s time

monday drive, I’m burning down to fumes
metal beetles snake for miles
in the forecast it’s all record highs again
the gassing asphalt snugs the tie around my neck

I’m on a sinking ship
and I’m the one
with a drill to the hull
