Lyrics to Missed The Boat
Missed The Boat Video:
While we're on the subject
Could we change the subject now?
I was knocking on your ears
Don't worry, you were always out

Looking towards the future
We were begging for the past
Well, we knew we had the good things
But those never seemed to last
Oh please just last

Everyone's unhappy
Everyone's ashamed
Well, we all just got caught looking
At somebody else's page

Well, nothing ever went
Quite exactly as we planned
Our ideas held no water
But we used them like a damn

Oh, and we carried it all so well
As if we got a new position
Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell
Saying yes, this is a fine promotion
Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell

Of course everyone goes crazy
Over such and such and such
We made ourselves a pillar
We just used it as a crutch

We were suddenly uncertain
At least I'm pretty sure I am
Well we didn't need the water
But we just built that go god damn

Oh, and I know this all myself
I stood in front for all the people
Oh, and I know this all myself
We listen while life hangs on
And the sound of life's sweet bliss

Was it ever worth it?
Was there all that much to gain?
Well, we knew we missed the boat
And we'd already missed the plane

We didn't read the invite
We just dance at our wake
All our favorites were playing
So we could shake, shake,
shake, shake, shake

Tiny curtains open
and we heard the tiny clap
of little hands
A tiny man would tell a little joke
and get a tiny laugh from all the folks

Sitting drifting around in bubbles
and thinking it was us
that carried them
When we finally got it figured out
that we had truly missed the boat

Oh, and we carried it all so well
As if we got a new position
Oh, and we owned all the tools ourselves
But not the skills to make a shelf with
Oh, what useless tools ourselves
