it doesn’t get much darker than this.
riding the train through the abyss.
left all the good ones behind.
not because i wanted to but because it was time.
i’ve come a long way.
now let’s just lie here, tell me what it’s like far out at sea.
but you can’t get to the point so i doubt that i can give you all of me
but we let ships collide. but we let ships collide.

i jump into the water. every time i do it’s not even cold.
so i just float on my back and i try not to do what i am told
and i watch you as you want your god to watch over you
but you’d like to choose what he’s allowed to see.
you remove your sign of religion,
he may see you drink but he shouldn’t see me.

i look back into the country
where i empty my head while it keeps being refilled
with a million different people
running on bad coffee and air conditioning
and if you tell me your story i might even tell you mine
but i might need to get off real soon, i always take the seat in the aisle.

but then tonight we let our ships collide. we let our ships collide.
we let our ships collide.
