Jer Coons – Ship Sank lyrics

Let me say that resentment is here
When you chose to steer clear
Of every effort that I make

I won't mask this message in a metaphor
In an attempt to insure that you relate

Cuz we were doing great
Until it dropped
All the planks, they cracked
And the ship began to sink

I often wonder if we could
Settle for less than perfect
In exchange for just okay

This is the song that we were playing
While the waves were swaying
Stuck with you beneath the planks
Singing when the ship sank

This is my declaration of dependency
It's clear I have a tendency
To shoot myself right in the foot
When someone's finally next to me

And I'll express some discontent
Pretend it's not affecting me
Project a hint of confidence
But chose these words selectively

Cuz actually reality
You're the chain that anchors me
You're the floor I go to
When the cracks all start developing

And I will do most anything
To conjure up the remedy
This turbulence may shake us
But I don't believe in entropy

This is the song that we were playing
While the waves were swaying
Stuck with you beneath the planks
Singing when the ship sank

You see I'd rather be a submarine
Than a shipwreck
Maybe that's how we have to operate
Because quite frankly my success
Depends on not being around
Let me explain
I can't domesticate

This is the song that we were playing
While the waves were swaying
Stuck with you beneath the planks
Singing when the ship sank (x2)
