AWOLNATION – Sail lyrics


This is how I show my love
I made it in my mind because
I blame it on my A. D. D baby

This how an angel cries
I blame it on my own sick pride

Blame it on my A. D. D baby

Sail! [x5]

Maybe I should cry for help
Or maybe I should kill myself (myself)

Blame it on my A. D. D baby

Maybe I'm a different breed
Maybe I'm not listening
So blame it on my A. D. D baby

Sail! [x5]

La lala lala, la lala lala oh [x2]

Sail! [x5]

Sail! [x5]
(Sail with me into the dark)[x3] (Sail with me)[x2]

    I think this song is about someone just wanting to be loved for who they are. I think the person wants the other person to just find something, anything, to blame their faults on and then just accept them because it can't be changed, like A. D. D. The person wants desperately to be taken seriously and accepted for who they are, even if they are "different. " just sail with it!

    This song has a special meaning to me. When I hear this song, I feel happy, sad, angry. This song touches my soul like no other song has. When I hear "Sail", I always envision a person fighting through a mob of people. When this person reaches the main villain, he gets beaten down. As the song picks up, the person gets back up, but with more strength and energy. He finally defeats the villain and saves the person/ people he was fighting for. I find that I can relate some parts of this vision to life: Fighting to save the things/ people you love, being beat down and then slowly rising to defeat the problem. We are all still fighting this fight, this fight against an unseen villain. We are all living in our own version of "Sail".
