Sitting alone on a boat
Silently waiting for something to come to me
Only just staying afloat
Wishing my sunburnt skin wasn’t so frail

You’re my distraction you know
You hold my attention like holding a gun to me
And when my mind starts to go
Into that territory you redraw the veil

As we, you and me face our own insanity
And the sea waltzes on and on, so do we

Taking a step to the right
I try to lead you but you won’t go with me
Not an unusual sight
Taking direction was never you thing

I’m not prepared to give in
If I can’t feed you, how will you grow with me
And though you usually win
I take some comfort from hearing you sing

As we, you and me face our own insanity
And the sea waltzes on and on, so do we

And with every turn comes a new vertigo
We drunkenly burn all of the truths we know

Finally when we arrive
Our destination questions our memory
Grateful for staying alive
We need no sympathy except from ourselves

As we, you and me waste our own insanity
And the sea waltzes on and on, so do we
