There she goes
walking past staring crows.
Clocking skulls and crossbones
row after row.
She can feel em’ in er’ blood,
She can hear em’ in her soul,
Keep that good book open,
Keep your pretty mouth closed.

Don’t rock the boat.
You don’t have to think,
just stay afloat.
And listen now girl,
don’t rock the boat
The truth is the current,
Just fight the flow.

In these quiet times,
when the water finds me,
It comes from somewhere else,
Turning pillars as it creeps.
Locked away, confined inside, it still flows apparently….
No matter how I drain the silence, friends it’s anchored deep.

But no no.
Don’t rock the boat.
don’tcha think,
Just stay afloat.
no girl no
don’t rock the boat.
The truth is in the current,
Stay out of the flow.

I floated in limbo there…
like you ask.
Still you cut out my tongue..
got a tight grasp…
Loloba come to collect my bones..
Because I won’t be kneeling down at a throne.

Break my knees,
chain me there,
Ill run until my feet are bare.
I’ll bleed…..only for myself.
Noted every word that you never said..
Every pencil still sharp….
lead broke me instead…
Now locked away and silent
it won’t flow apparently.
I tried to drain the fight for truth
but friends, it’s anchored deep.

So I won’t rock the boat,
but from here I must flee
I’ll jump from the inside
let the current take me
when I don’t return
you’ll know it must be
she drowned herself in truth
way out in the sea.
