Lopsided

This song is by At the Drive-In and appears on the album In/Casino/Out (1998).

Original video
This is the accent of the halfhearted land
Does it all make sense now?
And if the ship was built in bottled sand
Does it all make sense now?
The anchor's kiss was scrawled in dyslexic crayon
Does it all make sense now?

Is this just a life preserve or a bivouac tenure?
The tropic of cancer answered
"Drink the quicksand"

A mirror was splintered on the decks floor
Does it all make sense now?
A stowaway that lived beneath this hull
Does it all make sense now?
The anchor's kiss was scrawled in dyslexic crayon
Yes, it all makes sense now

Is this just a life preserve or a bivouac tenure?
This tropic of cancer answered
"Drink the quicksand"

Its gills will swim faster after a breath from the shore
Is this just a life preserve or a bivouac tenure?

Breathe the taste of salt water
Dry-heave up and overboard!
Ponce de León wrinkles
Let's make it young again!

Boat drinks for captains
Row our boat, stowaway!
Boat drinks for captains
Row our boat, stowaway!

Is this just a life preserve or a bivouac tenure?
This tropic of cancer answered
"Drink the quicksand"
Its gills will swim faster after a breath from the shore

All makes sense now
If your map was torn
Navigate, navigate
All makes sense now

If your compass broke
Navigate, navigate
All makes sense now

If your map was torn
Navigate, navigate
All makes sense now
