lyrics

hey kid, you're lightning in a bottle
you're sinking to the bottom of the bottom of my arms
if only I could dig you up from the belly of Manhattan
drag you to the sea

then would you say that you were sorry?
would you say that we'll be fine?
would you sing out like a canary in a coal mine?
would you call this a long time coming,
would you call me the next in line?
I've seen the signs & my dear child,
I will try to unhinge your cage this time

hey kid, my ancestors were smugglers,
I'm brilliant at discovering a place besides this place
watch this, I'll build you an escape route
a trail made out of hero capes & pillow case t-shirts

then would you say the coast is clear now?
would you say the water's fine?
would you sing out like a canary in a coal mine?
could you keep your head above water,
would you need me to throw the line?
I've seen the signs & my dear child,
I will try to unhinge your cage this time

if you follow me down tonight we'll stow you safe below
oh, if you bring all your warning signs, we'll feed them to the whales...
and sail on
