Drifting Too Far From Shore

Drifting Too Far From Shore
By Jimmy Rankin

I didn’t sleep a wink last night
Burning like electric light
Tried to leave
I couldn’t find the door

Spending all my time alone
Gotta put some meat on my bones
Mama mama I’m drifting too far from shore

I don’t want to go
With the others to the valley below
I don’t want to lay in a field of stone
I don’t want to see what I’ve seen before
Mama mama I’m drifting too far from shore

Living in the lost and found
I’m captain of a ship going down
I’ve had my fill but I still need more

Crazy like a shit house rat
Praying for relief from that
Mama mama I’m drifting too far from shore

I don’t want to go
With the others to the valley below
I don’t want to lay in a field of stone
I don’t want to be what I’ve been before
Mama mama I’m drifting too far from shore

Drifting too far from shore
Drifting too far from shore

I don’t want to go
With the others to the valley below
I don’t want to lay in a field of stone
I don’t want to see what I’ve seen before
I don’t want to be what I’ve been before

Mama mama I’m drifting too far from shore
