Ives The Band – Colonel Maxwell lyrics

Sound off, I fell asleep already dreaming that I'd lost
I wake up, grab my boots and drag my bag across the dock
I'm leaving home

Long gone, if I jump I'll never make it back to town (is it over now)
Hold on, don't look now but this whole ship is going down

And I'm trapped under water
Don't want to fend here for myself tonight
And I'm starting to lose it
I don't want to fend here for myself tonight

I'm the soul that sailed across that bay
The ship, a creature lost beneath the waves
So burn the bridge to hell and light my way
