Cradling the softest, warmest part of you in my hand Feels like a little baby bird fallen from the nest I think that your body is something i understand I think that i'm happy, i think that i'm blessed
I've got a lack of inhibition I've got a loss of perspective I've had a little bit to drink And it's making me think That i can jump ship and swim That the ocean will hold me That there's got to be more Than this boat i'm in
'cuz they can call me crazy if i fail All the chance that i need Is one-in-a-million And they can call me brilliant If i succeed Gravity is nothing to me, moving at the speed of sound I'm just going to get my feet wet Until i drown
And i teeter between tired And really, really tired Im wiped and im wired but i guess it's just as well Because i built my own empire Out of car tires and chicken wire And i'm queen of my own compost heap And i'm getting used to the smell
And i've got a lack of information But i got a little revelation And i'm climbing up on the railing Trying not to look down I'm going to do my best swan dive In the shark-infested waters I'm gonna pull out my tampon And start splashing around
'cuz i don't care if they eat me alive I've got better thing to do than survive I've got a memory of your warm skin in my hand And i've got a vision of blue sky and dry land
I'm cradling the hardest, heaviest part of me in my hand The ship is pitching and heaving, my limbs are bobbing and weaving And i think this is what i understand I just need a little vaccination for my far-away vacation I'm going to go ahead boldly because a little bird told me That jumping is easy, that falling is fun Up until you hit the sidewalk, shivering, stunned
And they can call me crazy if i fail All the chance that i need Is one-in-a-million And they can call me brilliant If i succeed Gravity is nothing to me Moving at the speed of sound I'm just gonna get my feet wet Until i drown...
