In a sea so empty
A captain dies with his ship
In a fleet depleting
And great lakes encircling

They're squeezing and choking us out

Where did everybody go?
New places, new homes
New interests

Cities that feel more alive
Am i staying here to die?
To fade out too?

An empty show
I'm here alone
Now another year older
I'm a rusted anchor in the ground

A treasure begging to be found
Another body 6 feet down
Will i dock or will i drown?

What's everybody running from?
