How far does it go? Is it me or is your face in the water?
My head will explode, if I try to hold my breath any longer.
Mapped out? I don't know, I was acting on an impulse, like your mother.

Sea sick on a rope, all the jokes that I keep making and forgetting,
Here's one that I know, but I lost the punch line two years ago.
Friend says to a foe, I'm just acting on an impulse, like your brother.

I wish that I could just make up my mind,
what a brilliant lullaby that you and I can finally write.

I wish I could just make up my mind,
to tie this anchor tight, and tell the world good bye.
Good bye x12

    Song Meaninghow far does it go? is it me or is your face in the water?
    my head will explode if i try to hold my breath an longer!
    mapped out? i don't know, i was on impulse like your mother

    --It's like he is looking down at the water and all he can see is his childrens faces. Was it logical to stick his head in after them? no, but it was an impulse like his wife sleeping with his brother.


    sea sick in a rope, all the jokes that i keep making and forgetting
    here's one that i know, but i lost the punch line two years ago
    friend says to a foe, im just acting on an impulse like my brother

    -- he's trying to move on, but in his effort still the only thing that sticks in his head are the parts relating to his wife and brother.

    last two verses

    -- wishes he could just move on and take his life. but he has an obligation to his children as evident in the last song.
