"Ships" as written by and John Tyler Ramsey....
It's so sad to see you clinging on desperately to one thing
When your dream is so entangled in another person's dream
They might tie you up forever
They might keep you down and tethered
When you finally remember yourself it may be too late

When the wind died down you found yourself out drifting in a ship whose sails
Weren't big enough to carry you and all the extra weight
Well you should have jumped some time ago and made your way back to the shore
And built a ship seaworthy
From the trees along the beach

Well I hope that there is wind enough to take you where you need to go
And time enough for you to plant your boundaries on the shore
Cause by now I've seen too many of us seamlessly upon the sea
Whose sails are clinging desperately to ships that once were worthy.
