Throw me overboard
To lighten your load
Let me drown
So you can take the high road
Throw me overboard
Cause you're playing your role
Easier to place the blame
Instead of fixing the hole
And you can tell me
It was a necessity
It was out of your hands
That I'll never understand
And you can tell me
It was an emergency
That you didn't have a voice
But I know it was your choice
And we all have things we can live without
And that makes me your Jettison

Throw me overboard
When the water's getting rough
When the going gets too tough
I guess you've just had enough
Throw me overboard
But you said you wouldn't bail
When the weather's getting bad
It's just easier to sail
And you could say that you
That you don't know what to do
That you'd stay if you could
But we know you never would
And you could that that you
That you always kinda knew
That you'd wanna work through it
But we know you can't commit
And we all have things we can live without
And that makes me your Jettison

When you don't care enough to stick around
When you're just trying to search for higher ground
You're afraid
Dropping anchor makes you fall apart
You've got it made
The end of me becomes your brand new start
And we all have things we can live without
And that makes me your... Jettison

Throw me overboard
To help you stay afloat
You will risk the crew
As long as you can save the boat
Throw me overboard
Cause you're playing your role
Easier to place the blame
