lyrics

Skull and Bones

Bad news bad knees
Now my lower back is failing me
I’m a thing of beauty to behold

Sailing winters of discontent
Left my mind and my body twisted up and bent

And I am confident that the future will unfold
Like a leaky ship that’s sinking
but I’ve been thinking you could patch me whole

You're the master shipwright who
Steers me leeward right through
These somber storms
Nail my colors to the mast
Hoist the skull and bones up fast

Demerol and Ativan
Vistaril and Midazolam
Things of beauty to behold

Benzo-diazepine and Propofol lays me down to dream of the
Sunken treasures only fools have spoken of

But now my faithful ship is taking water
I know I oughta try to patch some holes

You're the master shipwright who
Steers me leeward right through
These somber storms
Nail my colors to the mast
Hoist the skull and bones up fast

In the end, there’s nothing left but scars
All the tender parts turn hard
A thing of beauty I suppose

If you need me I’ll be in the bar
Drawing constellations around these harden scars

Cause I am so far from where I’d hope to be

But now my shipwreck has run aground
just when I found the stars to guide me back to you.

You're the master shipwright who
Steers me leeward right through
These somber storms
Nail my colors to the mast
Hoist the skull and bones at last
