Showers pounding out a new beat
I trade my old shoes for new feet
I grab a new seat
I don't like the one I've got
The fabric's wearing through
And it's wearing me out
You're wearing me down

Watch your baseball games and low budget telethons
Ain't like watching you yourself when you yourself is on
Got time to wonder, to waste and to whine
But when it comes to you
It seems like I just can't find the time

So watch your head and then watch the ground
It's a silly time to learn to swim when you start to drown
It's a silly time to learn to swim on the way down

If I gave you my number, would it still be the same
If I, if I saved you from drowning
Promise me you'll never go away
Oh, promise me you'll always stay

Closed down the last local zoo
I'm going to win the endless war
Over who kills the last koala bear
And who in death will love him more and I
He grabs me by the hand
Drags me to the shore and says
"Maybe you don't love me
But you'll grow to love me even more"
And I, well, I'm not surprised

    General CommentThis is a very coming of age song. Think of your Junior and or Senior year of High School Think of when you first came out with your sexuality. It's about finding yourself and becoming one with what you believe in.
