Shipwreck / Chris Connelly
I hope no one can find me
recessed in these waves quite alone
although grounded inside me
the fever bleached out by the sun
Are you gonna gauge your rage by the stars?
lift me on your shoulders to see where we are
every ripple brings a gift to your feet
some of them worthless; some of them sweet

I’m as soaking wet as your eyes
grey robs blue and heads for the sky
here comes another shipwreck, to pass in the night
design your own sunset and drop out of sight

You give to me what splendor is left submerged
Oh baby, don’t worry, I’ll drown enough for two
it’s sinking, believe in it, I’ll stay with my ship and ask…
Oh, kiss my Hardy, the Albatross, Columbus and Drake
Oh baby, don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing,
It’s cold and it’s sinful, it’s the only way I know to breath free.
What’s proven in darkness, the drugs and the water mix well,
If I come across heartless, I lost what I knew when I fell.
In a pool of light, you rescue your wings.
try to fly away from desperate things
Every piece of fortune is lost for today
I won’t hold my breath as it sweeps me away

I’m as soaking wet as your eyes
grey robs blue and heads for the sky
here comes another shipwreck, to pass in the night
design your own sunset and drop out of sight

here it comes, here it comes… oh, oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa, oh…
