I made a list of all you’ve done wrong this week
I swallowed it whole and wondered why I couldn’t breathe
Let’s build a ship
And load it with fear
And I’ll punch a hole in the hull
I can’t understand
Why this always sinks
Let’s all pretend
That we can breathe
If you call for help then I won’t
Have to admit that I need help too
Shocked by disaster
Confusing mistakes as just more accidents
I told you I knew how to swim
But I’m not sure when I learned
There’s drowning people everywhere
And I wish it weren’t my turn
