lyrics

We all try to float on the best we can
But the water is so fearful how long can we last
My life is the water the boat is my head
The fishes are dreams that never began

Getting seasick inside my car
And dramamine won't do a thing
I'm getting a little overwhelmed
The waves are crashing down
And I'm getting farther away from shore

It's becoming so hard to prioritize
When people assume the importance of their lives
And here I've got one paddle and a hole in the sail
People can't you see that I'm destined to fail

Getting seasick inside my car
And dramamine won't do a thing
I'm getting a little overwhelmed
The waves are crashing down
And I'm getting farther away from shore

Oh well, we all get a little seasick some times
But we'll all soldier on alright
