Float

  • Drank away the rest of the day
    Wonder what my liver'd say
    Drink, it's all you can

    Blackened days with their bigger gales
    Blow in your parlor to discuss the day
    Listen, it's all you can

    [Chorus]
    But don't, don't sink the boat
    That you need, you build to keep afloat
    No don't, don't sink the boat
    That you built...

    Sick and tired of what to say
    Jumped away from the ball and chain
    Breath, it's all you can

    Rambling years of lousy luck
    You miss the smell of burning turf
    Dream, it's all you can

    [Chorus]

    Singled out for who you are
    Takes all types to be a man
    Feel, it's all you can

    Filthy suits with bigot ears
    Hide behind their own worst fears
    Live, it's all you can
    It's all you can
    It's all you can... Do

    No matter where I put my head
    I wake up feeling sound again
    Breath, it's all you can

    Tomorrow smells of less decay
    Beats the bows that bloom the fray
    Be thankful, it's all you can

    But don't, don't sink the boat
    That you built, you built to keep alfoat
    But don't, don't sink the boat
    That you built, you built to keep afloat
    But don't, don't sink the boat
    That you built, you built to keep afloat

    No don't, no don't sink the boat
    That you built,
    We all built to keep afloat

    A ripe old age
    A ripe old age
    I'm a ripe old age
    That's what I am

    Ripe old age
    Ripe old age
    A ripe old age
    Just doin' the best I can

    A ripe old age
    A ripe old age
    A ripe old age
    That's what I am
    A ripe old age
    A ripe old age
    A ripe old age
    That's what I am
    Just doin' the best I can

    The best I can...Writer/s: Bridget A Regan, David R King, Dennis Casey, George Edward Schwindt, Nathen Maxwell, Robert Anthony Schmidt
