Before work he would just sit on that dock and watch the ocean.
Waiting for his little brother to come home so he could put a couple bullets in him,
put him in the ground with the father he’d wronged.
His hands hurt every day after towing those lines in
they cracked when the winters came.
Every night he’d come home to his mother passed out because of the junk she put in her arm.
He’d pick her up and lay her in bed,
kiss her forehead and close the door.
He hated seeing her like that.
He knew the only reason she started on that stuff in the first place is because she couldn’t deal with how his father drank.
But that ain’t no reason to hurt yourself.

As the waves crash, the clouds roll
As the waves crash, the clouds roll

Sit on the dock waiting for the sun
Wait for the coward but he never comes
Pray for revenge on him
Steam rises as the boats come in, one by one

You know she is gone
You know there’s no saving her
You know she is gone
You know
Her cheating, her weak will, the addiction, that needle

When you come home to find her lying on the floor
You’re reminded of those sleepless nights that will haunt you for the rest of your life
Blue collar shipyard, any way to keep her alive
Sun up to sun down, sun up to sun down
Blistered hands and a parched mouth

You know she is gone
You know there’s no saving her
You know she is gone
You know
Her cheating, her weak will, the addiction, that needle
Her cheating, her weak will, the addiction, that needle
