I'm in a boat
there's a hole in the bottom
and my oars
have floated away
I'm bailing my boat
with both of my hands now
to keep my head
above the waves

salt on my hide
pennies on my eyes

I've lived my life in this ol' boat
and all this time I've kept afloat
but I'm treading water now

and I'm wondering how
how it feels to drown
I'm sinking down.

Way down
