Take me on board that ship, miles away from this
but everything is behind.

I carry it on my back, so when we drown they won’t last.
I’m gonna sink this boat down.

So take me on board, take me on board.

My room light fizzles out as I taste life,
as it so perfectly goes down.

And maybe I won’t know
why I have just left you dry.
Make it to shore for the night?
As if we’d rely on older times.
If I don’t make it out,
don’t come running to shout:
“I can’t swim anyway.”

“I can’t swim, anyway.”

So take me on board. Take me on board.
