Leaky lifeboat
Sleeps off shore
It was sailing backwards
To the freaky north

My brother the wind he's got to know
Got to get it together and blow

Slipping sideways
Get it straight
The siren sonars
Are tempting fate

Fates in a pleasant mood today
Don't get around much, but hey
I gotta say
Sun's gotta play

La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Leaky lifeboat
Called to shore
You got another
Chance to score

My brother the wind he's got to know
Got to get it together
And blow
Before the sun gets cold
Cold to gold

La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la (x2)

    The band explained this tribute to Beat poet Gregory Corso in publicity materials: "The NYC beat poet Gregory Corso once referred to life on Earth as a leaky lifeboat. This tune expounds on this rumination."
