lyrics

The line on the horizon
Isn't getting any closer
Our water's running out
Our hull's been taking water
It's been thirty years
Since the war began in earnest
Fifteen years since
Those left who could afford it

Our filtration systems cannot keep up
With the decomposition of the asphalt and the rock
Irradiated water, irradiated meat
I remember when the air tasted almost sweet

This creaky wooden ship
Is all we've got left
And if we meet another
They'll take even that
I've tried to raise you right
But this world is a pit
We came out of the water
We're going back to it

Trust going forward would be infinitely worse
Besides, remember, it isn't your choice
Your mother's waiting for you and I'll be right behind
So just come inside and close your eyes

Come inside and close the door.
