lyrics

Pour me a drink until you hear that click
Tick goes the list, tics I have many
Another book in the library stacks
Of bleeding hearts & heart attacks

Slow drift, that's how I'll go
A small shift, a boat out to sea
A tiny rift, a raft on a river
I'm cast adrift, to the edge... of the world

Slip in the gin, a bath of cool relief
Heart is bleeding like a TV joke
cliché abyss & tragic Dickinson
I'm just trying to find a warm bar tab

Slow drift, that's how I'll go
A small shift, a boat out to sea
A tiny rift, a raft on a river
I'm cast adrift, to the edge... of the world

Truckers let 'er ride for this slow drift, this
small shift it goes slowly over time
You hardly notice until one day
The sand won't hold back,
The highway's impassable,
You can't paddle the boat
And it all goes under...
