lyrics

I sit
On a boat
With a penguin and a giraffe

We float
On the lake
Anchored to the floor

Feel the push and the pull against the chain
I have no strength to pull it up
Feel the push and the pull against the waves
Waters want to carry while I carry the blame

I could swim
But my dears, what of you

Too small
My penguin
Too frail, my giraffe

Feel the push and the pull against the chain
I have no strength to pull it up
Feel the push and the pull against the waves
Waters want to carry while I carry the blame

What could
You know
Of the world beyond

I think
I remember
But it's been too long

Oh why I remain

Feel the push and the pull against the chain
I have no strength to pull it up
Feel the push and the pull against the waves
Waters want to carry while I carry the blame

I carry the blame
I carry the blame
