Took your turn at the wheel of a sinking ship
And saw disaster rising through the swells
Maybe you jumped headfirst for the shallows
Maybe you’ll find out the ground is there as well

I used to dream you’d send us over the edge
A helplessness confused for trust
The last safe place is blown to dust

Took your turn at the wheel of a sinking ship
Ignored the chaos churning in its wake
Maybe you waved away all the warnings
Maybe what the left hand wants, the right would break

I used to dream you’d send us over the edge
A quiet just before the crash
The last safe place scatters like ash

Had to take a little time
Had to lose a little blood
Had to teach myself to let the walls close in
Just to make it through the night
Just to watch everything fall
Just to try and stop it happening again

But still, I’d dream you’d send us over the edge
A lifetime hanging in the air
The last safe place becomes nowhere
