I think we're heading in the same direction
When you go bit insane
I try to reason it’s too easy to give up on it
But I don’t wanna play this blame game again

We cover over all the things that bring us closer
And before you know it it's goodbye
So now you’ve said your piece
And I try to find a way to organize my mind
Stay on course, straight and true
And you, you think we’re heading in the right direction
but I don’t know if I do too

Cos I try to send a message
But you don’t wanna hear it
You're so obsessed with all the things they said and how they see us
I try to draw the anchor but you just cast another down
Don’t wanna go down with this ship

Don’t wanna go down (with this ship)
No I don’t wanna go down (with this ship)
I don’t wanna go down (with this ship)
No I don’t wanna go down (with this ship)

Cos I try to send a message but you don’t wanna hear it
You're so obsessed with all the things they said and how they see us
I try to draw the anchor but you just cast another
And I don’t wanna go down with this ship

I fly this flag forever but you don’t wanna see it
The way it was it’s how it is for you and you can’t leave it
We're only treading water, but slowly sinking deeper
And I don't wanna go down with this ship

I don't wanna go down with this ship
I don't wanna go down with this ship

    General CommentI know it's cliche but I think it's a song just about before a break up. I'd love to hear alternative interpretations though.

    General CommentI'm thinking the same, the relationship's going under, and perhaps the other person in the relationship is listening too much to other people rather than her partner, and that's frustrating him.

    HAHAHA. Ship. RelationSHIP. Don't know if that's on purpose or not, but I like it xD
