Will you keep my company
As I break late into the sea
And the panic uncovers me

I'm a breath away from shore
I wish for five minutes more
But that's not my story

There was a shock of glacial wake up call cut through the desert
I was hanging onto reeds to let the current lift me
I don't think I ever did get born from that cold shoulder
anyway nobody ever took the time to then forgive me
But they come in late
and they don't get it

I've been swimming through the foam on top of broken waves
I been burning out my eyes with every bearing met
I been going deep and telling all the fish who'll listen
that all my anecdotes and clever phrasing are the best they'll get
But they come in late
And they don't get it

You been preaching hard from the backside of your apartment complex
You told your neighbor to just let you ford the ocean like a river
But nobody seems to let you swim when they should just let you swim
it's your job to not to sink so do your thing and tread water however you come hither
