lyrics

I have not nor will I leave
Something in which I still believe
For love is such a complex thing
Not simplified by writs or rings

Oil my skin
To keep the badness in
For eyes that see just good
Are as much use now as knotted wood

I have not nor will I fight
For things I don’t believe are right
So pass my shield and dry your eyes
And listen to these battle cries
WOOOO-HOOO

Oil my skin
To keep the badness in
For eyes that see just good
Are as much use now as knotted wood

I demand a thousand days
To make some sense of what we’ve made
I do not want to build on sand
Unstable feet need stable land

Oil my skin
To keep the badness in
For eyes that see just good
Are as much use now as knotted wood

I WILL SAIL…my father’s boat
I WILL SAIL…my father’s boat
I WILL SAIL…my father’s boat
I WILL SAIL…my father’s boat

Oil my skin…

We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
