we reached the boards, put the car in park
walked until the earth turned into rock
with all we planned, with everything we feared
we're off the map, there be monsters here

why won't you swim?

with the moon gone, with eyes that can't adjust
we held our ground where the earth dropped off
some driftwood on the shoreline in the dark
wondering how we got to where we are

why won't you swim?
I'm sunk, too, but why won't you swim?

you can be sure it started with a grain
on another grain again and again
and through the years a divide appeared
now there's sand everywhere

why won't you swim?
I want to, but why won't you swim?
