I've been throwing up over this ledge for the last 7 weeks
and you've been throwing history to hell

I've been writing almost everyday that I've been gone
do you still remember how my beard once felt

I've been eating seaweed from a whale named Emily
she could swallow me, or help me swallow pride

We wade under the tow like diamonds
We wade under the tow like diamonds
Like diamonds do

I've been watching you look at a locket from your mother
or perhaps it's from a girl you don't speak of

Do you miss her when she's sleeping
Do you find it hard to eat when
everything reminds you of her steely ghost

So to captains of my captain, how can I become a captain
Get the strength I need to pull this one around

I will wait under the tow like lions
I will wait under the tow like lions

Like lions do

Oh my god, what am I doing here?

Now I walk this ship of golden brown
You sit back covered up in sounds
That don't come from my lips
You know they don't come from my lips

And you can try to break the silence
While you're making love with violence
To my flesh and blood, a traitor
Oh my flesh and blood are traitors to you now.

Oh my god, what am I doing here?
Oh my flesh and blood are traitors to you now.
Oh my god, what am I doing here?
What am I doing here?
