Dream's a whale and I am Ahab
I am the captain of this rusty Bucket ship
I left my home in search of big goals
I promised my family that I'd break the mold
So I set sail to the land of green grass
So much time's passed I forgot what I was lookin' for

Hope on a rope
The butt of a bad joke
Push yourself to the limit, kid
Thatta boy, way to go
Hope on a rope
The butt of a bad joke
Push yourself to the limit, kid
Thatta boy, way to go

Compass is broke, it gives me no direction
It reads like a riddle, gotta see through the smoke
"Stay the course" folks would always say
From port to port but they never know the way
Deliver me, Lord some kind of answer
This dream's a cancer and I can't paddle no more

Hope on a rope
The butt of a bad joke
Push yourself to the limit, kid
Thatta boy, way to go
Hope on a rope
The butt of a bad joke
Push yourself to the limit, kid
Thatta boy, way to go

Anchored down, I breathe in
'Cause we got hope, we won't be sinking
Hope on a rope
The butt of a bad joke
Push yourself to the limit, kid
Thatta boy, way to go
Hope on a rope
The butt of a bad joke
Push yourself to the limit
There's no end to this road
Our hope, like a carrot on a rope
Always off in the distance, all she blows
Our hope, like a carrot on a rope
Just our of reach, that's all she wrote
Our hope, like a carrot on a rope
Always off in the distance, all she blows

Breathe it in
