lyrics

Lackwit

I played a part, I say the silly things to
appease your heart, I played a part
I climb the trees, police the breeze,
I’ll screw a dream right off your jar
Found out that’s how you get discarded

I had my wits about me then,
but I’m a lackwit now, I say
you could ask me anything and I won’t know
I won’t know, I won’t know, no I won’t

This once was a manned ship, captain, steward and whip
Every oar was to and fro
Every wave, an average blow, it's now a decimated throw-away
A whale just beached and singing as we go


I had my wits about me then,
but I’m a lackwit now, I say
you could ask me anything and I won’t know
I won’t know, I won’t know, no I won’t
