Florence And The Machine – Ship To Wreck Lyrics

Don’t touch the sleeping pills, they mess with my head,1
Dredging the Great White Sharks, swimming in the bed,2
Here comes a Killer Whale, to sing me to sleep,3
Thrashing the covers off, has me by its teeth,4

And oh my love remind me, what was it that I said?
I can’t help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed5
And oh my love remind me, what was it that I did?
Did I drink too much?
Am I losing touch?6
Did I build a ship to wreck?7

To wreck, to wreck, to wreck,
Did I build this ship to wreck?

What’s with the long face?8 Oh, do you want more?9
Thousands of red-eyed mice, scratching at the door,10
Don’t let the curtain catch you, ’cause you’ve been here before,
The chair is in high land darling, you can’t touch the floor,11

And oh my love remind me, what was it that I said?
I can’t help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed
And oh my love remind me, what was it that I did?
Did I drink too much?
Am I losing touch?
Did I build a ship to wreck?

To wreck, to wreck, to wreck,
Did I build this ship to wreck?

And good god, under star disguise we are lost,12
And into the breach we got tossed,
And the water’s coming in fast!13

And oh my love remind me, what was it that I said?
I can’t help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed
And oh my love remind me, what was it that I did?
Did I drink too much?
Am I losing touch?
Did I build a ship to wreck?

To wreck, to wreck, to wreck,
Did I build this ship to wreck?

To wreck, to wreck, to wreck,
Did I build this ship to wreck?14
