"A Bluer Sea" as written by and Tim Kasher....
I'm in misery alone
I'm in misery betrothed
Not a Sadomasochist
A Sadomonogamist

When you were young, you were so romantic
You married quick to prove you knew what love is

Adrift . . . (6x)

It's a shame I cannot decide
Which way to ruin my life
It's assured whichever I'd choose
I'd be doomed to despise

You became a man, you didn't stand a chance
You assumed love was just a blind man's hang-up

Without an anchor, I am free
Without an anchor, I do as I please

Your sudden drift amongst your stormy sea
Of women old and new and used and lonely

Without an anchor, I'm a wreck
Without an anchor, I regress

And all these women see your damaged good
Before they flee, who'll take you seriously

Adrift . . . (12x)

I'm a middle-aged cliché
Found out I'm satisfied
Too small to appreciate
When life is merely all right

Those women you once loved have open arms
That you abruptly shoved aside for the next one (3x)

Without an anchor, I am free
Without an anchor, I do as I please

Without an anchor, I'm a wreck
Without an anchor, I regress

    My Interpretationi'm pretty sure a lot of these lyrics are wrong, or i'm hearing them incorrectly.

    instead of "state of masochist/state of monogamist," i'm pretty sure it's "sadomasochist/sadomonogamist"

    "which job" should be "whichever"

    "a word once hang off" should be "a blind man's hang-up"

    "a women old and knew and used and warned me" should be "of women old and new and used and lonely"

    i don't know what "before they flee, who'll take you seriously" has more words in the line, but i'm having trouble deciding what they actually are.

    and i think it says "those women you once loved have open arms that you abruptly shoved aside for the next one"

    also, in repetition, i think "high regrets" is actually "i regress"

    that's just what i hear when i listen to it. i don't know if it's accurate, since i have the digital download copy and don't have a lyrics book.

    General Commentalso, i'm pretty sure "man who lays cliche" is "middle-aged cliche"
