lyrics

admit that i was scared
i couldn't empty out my head
of the fragile things you always said
would suffocate me

now i'm down below the lake
where the algae & the catfish snake
between the shellfish & the rocks
that wrap around me

a room made of sea nurtures me
grow gills & sleep on a water bed
& the moon may shine down
but i wouldn't know
i'm living too far down below

near the bottom of the sea
there's an old man waiting around for me
with a glass of rum & a tv
that's all i care for

i will stay inside my room
on a ship that sank 300 years
before you knew that i was here
i am its captain

& you're the first mate of nothing
nothing gained, nothing lost
a calculated sunk cost

but sometimes at dusk
when the sun goes down
i feel you walking along the beach
try to think of a way to reach you

make my way to the surface
i'll break for the surface
of the sea
