​Thin World Waltz

This song is by Why Are We Building Such A Big Ship? and appears on the album Why Are We Building Such A Big Ship? (2007).

Well let's walk on eggshells
Tiptoe our sins
World isn't flat
It's just too thin

We've smashed out our exit
And peeled back the skin
I said hold on tight
You said let's fall in

Well we floated like feathers
Down to the canvas
Vanity's dead
So beauty unhand us

Came to a rest
Right next to the flames
I wanted to burn
But the fire was tame

Well what kind of madness
We find ourselves in
Wanted oblivion
But we didn't fit in

Well, times like these
Let's think to the sea, oh
Room full of ghosts
You and me, oh

Well some ships go down
Some float far too long
Others set sail
For the place they belong

Crews change
And captains run off
There's a room full of ghosts
Towards the rocks

Aweigh
Your way
Your way
Aweigh
Aweigh
Aweigh

Some ships go down
Some float far too long
Well

Some set sail
Oars glide along (?)

Aweigh
Aweigh
Your way
Your way
Your way
Aweigh
Aweigh
Aweigh
Way
