lyrics

As I sank my feet down the thousand leagues
To where my old man was wading
He whispered to me "Life ain’t got giving trees
So it’s time that you started your taking
But son, you take from no one"

I sat and I watched as he carved out a clock
Keeping all of the innards that left last
He says, “The ticks are a tease
Life’s the full cup of tea
Bound to spill down your sleeve
You better change fast.
Because time, she waits for no one.”

So I’m saving for the day
When the couple quarters spun in place
Are spent or split away from us

From beginnings to ends every middle depends
On the miss or the mark of your finger
He said "to last here is a test
And all my last years have left
So tell your mom, and my son, and your sisters
No line can last forever"

Then I’m sailing out to see
If my father found a closer seat.
What better way to face a flood.
