lyrics

I was dreaming of lions
And lying in the sand
I was looking down
At the scars of my left hand

It's better to be lucky
But I rather be exact
I'm pulling pennies out of wishing wells
Yeah, I'm taking them back

If I was a younger man
I could have made a better stand
Against the slate the arrows of light
I could have made it out
I could have been all right

Never wanted to feel like
An old man and the sea
Never wanted to be like
To be or not to be
It's too late now, I've already been cast out
The whales and the waves
At mercy, to how the ocean behaves
And the sharks are coming in

Much faster than the shoreline
I'm sure I'm not fine
Even though, I fucking tried
To fucking stand up straight and fucking be ok
Well fuck if it mattered anyways

I was dreaming of lions and bleeding on the sheets
When I looked up, there was a young man taking care of me
