Blighted bits of satisfaction
In the sounds from the city streets
I try to learn the art of sailing
And there's so many ships at sea

I took a pause there on the pavement
I took the peace that it provides
And the moment passed in silence
On a golden sea of time

Are their sails stealing good fortune?
Are they favored by the winds?
Making the most of every moment
Do they love and do they let love in?

My head hung and hands are hidden
I want it over again and again
I'm dealing with all these details
That have tripped up much lesser men

So this act was all just feigning
I broke the fourth wall in this play
I'm standing here with shackles dangling
Darling what is there left to say

So lie me in the orchard
In the blackness of an elm
Take the last stretch to the silent waters
Where I don’t have to let anybody in

Now I am halted in the hallway
I am clinging to the calm
I'm not asking you to love me
I'm just wondering where I went wrong
