Well I believed what I was told
To save me the trouble of thinking
I dipped my toe in the sea of knowledge
And felt like I was sinking
So we made our home upon the sand
And I dressed up in beautiful shells
And I cooked you your fish and your lobsters
And left the boat building to somebody else

But if you say you can't argue with nature
Then nature might argue with you
I couldn't live on the shoreline all my life
Without learning a thing or two
But will you be the one who rocks the boat
And rings the bells
And then when the whole thing capsizes
Will you blame it on somebody else?

And now you say you must set sail
A far shore for to reach
It's more important to go forth and conquer
Than to clear up the mess you've left on the beach
But when the ship goes down, you know
It's every man for himself
Every man for himself
And every woman for somebody else
