2000 Leagues Below

from by Boy Goliath



The world's on a thread
But I can't write a letter
To my mother
I just lie in bed
Slowly filling clean floor
With my clutter
I've been soaked
Selling bones
I should let my loved ones know

The captain is lying out
Shotguns scattered out
Beneath his rib cage
He always had some doubts
Never quite worked out
Within his headspace
He was broke
No where to go
Blind in one eye
The other points him home
2000 leagues below

Playing spades with Davie
Within the belly whale
Finally found company
Deep in the confines of a tale
Now my sins don't matter
To the fish they'd rather
Move their fins
In a circular motion
But God damn it I'm the captain
Of this ship and we've been crashing
For four years
And I lost score four years ago

All my friends get lonely
And I get lonely
But they still love me
And I love them too
