floating in the forth lyrics – frightened rabbit

so you just stepped out
of the front of my house
and i’ll never see you again.
i closed my eyes for a second
and when they opened
you weren’t there.
and the door shut shut
i was vacuum packed,
shrink-wrapped out of air
and the spine collapsed
and the eyes rolled back
to stare at my starving brain,

and fully clothed, i float away
(i’ll float away)
down the forth, into the sea
i think i’ll save suicide for another day.

and i picture this corpse
on the m8 he*rs*
and i half run away to sleep
on a rolled up coat
against the window
with the strobe of the sun
and the life i’ve led
am i ready to leap
is there peace beneath
the roar of the forth road bridge?
on the northern side
there’s a fife of mine
and a boat in the port for me,

and fully clothed, i float away
(i’ll float away)
down the forth, into the sea
i’ll steer myself
through drunken waves
these manic gulls
scream it’s okay
take your life
give it a shake
gather up
all your loose change
i think i’ll save suicide for another year.
