lyrics

fly south for the winter
looking for warmer weather
and a sun to warm the parts
that have been left out in the cold
I heard about the dancing
and I heard about their songs
and I thought if I listened close
I would learn to sing along

they say no man’s an island
but damned if I ain’t been floating
face down staring at the bottom of the sea
and all I wanted was to try it
to push and to pry it from the hands of someone
probably more deserving than me

and I don’t want to be another sinking stone
but if I hold my breath for long enough
I’ll find out where this current goes
and who’s to say if up above or down below
they can see the answers better, I don’t know

profits prophesizing, politicians profiteering
and the big machine that runs this place
is running out of steam
but I thought if I could see it
oh if I could only hold it
I could carve out a little bit, a little bit for me

and I don’t want to be another sinking stone
but from what I’ve heard ‘bout gravity
well, sometimes even stones will roll
and who’s to say if up above or down below
they can see the answers better, I don’t know

I wrote this for my mother
I wrote this for my father
and I’m singing it for everyone
who still has yet to hear
there are islands, there are oceans
rocks and those who throw ‘em
they’ll say what they want to say
and you’ll see what you want to see

and I don’t want to be another sinking stone
and just because I’m by myself
don’t mean I’m in this thing alone
and who’s to say if up above or down below
they can see the answers better, I don’t know
