A song about assholes and people who don't listen. Was considering calling it 'Rock the Boat' but it's a little different to that dance floor classic by The Hues Corporation that everyone danced to at Mosney at some stage of their lives.


You're gonna rock the boat
To see which way I fall tonight.
Up on deck there's plenty of strange delights.
I wanna be the one who sees you without sight.
I got tales to tell if that'll be alright.

I watch as you break off some of me to chew.
As usual it's too much even for you.
Your lessons are learned the hard way.
But between now and then we don't listen to a word you say

Robbin' me blind enables you to see
What lurks beneath the masks of people you meet.
I was never one for showing up
Other's weaknesses that they gave up.

But sometimes a man must buck the trend.
To reach a beginning instead of an end.
The writing's on the wall for you and me.
But we're all too fuckin' blind to have a read.
