you sang that same old song in that same old offhand way
i dug into the table to drink the day away
across the empty barroom i saw you catch my gaze
i wonder if you'll follow while i vanish in the haze

this ship is sinking and i've been thinking
if i could just tread water i might keep you around
maybe find a little grace before this ship goes down

did you say you know the way to circumvent the rules
they'd slave to learn the way to sink our ship of fools
we'll get there on our own all we got is time
you sing that song i'll close my eyes and we'll be fine
