lyrics

My baby doll
Could you just go
Down to the sushi bar and get me what I want

You know I want a car 
I want a dress
I want a bag that’s big enough to fit My seven hundred friends

We’re gonna need a miracle
We’re gonna need a plan
We’re gonna HAVE to find
Someplace to go

We’re out here in the water with our pockets full of sand
And the sinking souls around us yelling 
No… no… no!

We’re gonna need a bigger
Boat
For all this
Shit
We can’t just go around pretending everyone is gonna fit

I know I
Told you
I promised
It

But I have always been a liar
Sorry, life’s a fucking bitch

I want a castle
In the country
I want a loft downtown
I wanna call you 
When I want you
But I don’t want you hanging around

And while you’re out dear
Get me a church dear
Not some strip mall shit 
I’m talking real stained glass

And my believers
People with class
I’m gonna hang out on my alter in my golden robe and crown professing All my propaganda while they kiss my ass

We’re gonna need a miracle
We’re gonna need a plan
We’re gonna have to find someplace to go

We’re stuck here in a lifeboat with our amputated hands
And our automated captain yelling
Row… row… row!

We’re gonna need a bigger
Boat
For all this
Shit

We can’t just go around pretending 
Everyone is gonna fit

I know I
Told you
I promised
It

But I have always been a liar
Sorry, life’s a fucking bitch

What’s with the storm over-
Head? All those white caps? I’m
Feeling my wishes sink
Back under water. My
Dreamboat is crumbling
All ‘round my bed and I
Think I just watched all my
Treasure chests floating
Away with the circus you
Made from the bones of my
Husband and children and
Now that the water is
Up to my petticoat
I am beginning to
Wonder how likely it
Is that I’ll float with my
Wrists bound with jewelry
Body of corsetry
Shining brass livery
From my head to my feet......

We’re gonna need a bigger
Boat
For all this
Shit

We can’t just go around pretending 
Everyone is gonna fit

I know I
Told you
I promised
It

But I have always been a liar
Sorry, life’s a bitch

A bigger
Boat
For all this
Fish

We’re gonna murder all the oceans
With a fucked up wish

I know I
Told you
I promised
It

But I was lying when I promised
And I’ve always been a liar
you’re not getting on this boat
So fucking
Live
With
It
