"Taking on Water" as written by and Bill Mallonee....
yes you're a big ship
loaded down with a whole lot of baggage and freight
life's a luxury liner
cutting through each circumstance and wave
now the cold icy waters
have sent the captain with his bottle off to bed
yeah the temperature's dropping
the radio is dead

taking on water
going down fast
yes under the breakers
send an S.O.S.
tell all the passengers
to spend what they wanna
taking on water

call it catastrophe
or the hand of the good Lord reaching through
call it a tragedy
there will be no last minute interviews
got to be a bit heavy-handed
when you're swimming in the shark infested seas
yeah to get my attention
off of my treason and mutiny

yeah call me irresponsible
but baby call me undeniably true
well at least for the moment
when i first set my eyes on You
got a big hole in a small heart
asking You no begging You to fill
gonna take some radical surgery
but You know my nasty will
