Son, you are no island
You don't get to choose what stays and goes
Son, you're not a man yet
Until your yes is yes and nos are nos

Son, you are no mountain
You and the sky aren't seeing eye to eye
Son, you're not a man yet
You're just the firstborn feeling left behind

Son, you are no ocean
No sunken boat pervades your salty boughs
Son, you're not a man yet
You dove to save a child who must be drowned
You drowned to save yourself
You drowned to save yourself

Son, you are no chasm
Your void holds no mystique to be unearthed
Son, you're not a man yet
No woman's arms could carry out your worth
No, not even hers
No, not even hers

Son, you are no river
Your currents don't run steady as she goes
Son, you're not a man yet
You fucked with a woman who would know
I would know (x10)
