Islands - Vertigo (If It's A Crime) lyrics

big boat caught in my throat
it's the deck hand hitting the wrong notes
came to with a pain in my gut again
I cut it open wide, took out a box
inside the box there was a beat keeping time
is it a crime to pass the blame
if every time the punishment is the same?
life is a loose tooth leaving your mouth
so get it out get it out
dig that ditch
ditch that dirt
it's just a body now
pick me up so I can fall back down again
decending into vertigo
if it's a crime they'll hang me every time
I tried to offer up a reason why
I tried, my dear, to set things straight
I fear that I was too late to be cleared of the crime
I ust missed a slap on the wrist,
a key witness to the stand
but the jury's out creeping about & I am a guilty man
and the cyst is growing into this
so I drowned in the boat I choked down
and the captain remained proud
looked down, seeing the ground getting closer to me
and now the ground is coming up my sleeves
pick me up so I can fall back down again
descending into vertigo
if it's a crime they'll hang me every time
I tried to offer up a reason why
I tried, my dear, to set things straight
I fear that I was too late to be cleared of the crime
if it's a crime, they'll hang me every time
I tried to set things straight
I fear that I was too late to be cleared of the crime
