Don't quit your day job
they told me to say
I already did

I don't expect
my dreams to float
but I would not exchange them
for a boat
with your head above water
and your feet on the ground
how long will it be
before I drown
cause I'm bailing out as fast as I can
what is it? that makes a man

the answer depends on what kind of man you want to be
standing on the shore but im looking at the sea
what i'll leave behind if i push off the dock
how much time is left on the clock?
cause there seems to be a rising tide
my sails are open wide

drop your anchor and let the rest blow away
for what is left its a small price to pay
my decision has already been made
and this moment has begun to fade
like a photograph left out in the sun


from Youth is a Train, released November 4, 2010
