my cousin the alcoholic

throwing out the raft

you saw yourself as a failure but that isn't fair failures wouldn't give me a reason to care

divorced by distance and laid low by time but i never forgot you and you're still on my mind

you loved david bowie and you loved your cat i loved you like a brother and you loved me back

i wanted to save you and i looked for ways but i guess some people aren't meant to be saved

you're drowning at sea and they throw out the rafts and you try and you try but you can't get a grasp

but i won't stop trying and i never will to make the tides clear and the water go still
