Know me broken by my master
Teach thee our child love hereafter

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Drifting body it's sole desertion
Flying not yet quite the notion

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way, YEAHHH

Am I wrong?
Have I run to far to get home?
Have I gone?
And left you here alone?
Am I wrong?
Have I run to far to get home?
Have I gone?
And left you here alone?

If I would? could you?

    Cantrell wrote this soon after the death of his friend Andrew Wood[Mother Love Bone frontman].
    I think it reflects on some personal recollections of his lost friend, but it goes further to address the fragility we all face when we live life in the fast lane ~ or in this case on a troubled sea.
