lyrics

until the water runs out, I'm gonna wet my lips
until the water runs out, I'm gonna sail my ships
you're gonna wish you were
alone at the oasis
until the water runs out, I'm taking it inch by inch

and when the rain does fall, I'm gonna lift my head
when the rain does fall, I'm gonna wonder
where you all fled
you're gonna wish you were
high on a mountain, safe on a ledge
instead of catching you by surprise at the water's edge

and I'm gonna pull my own ropes,
leave my anger aside
you're gonna face your own surprise,
what you thought was your life
was just a room to occupy

until the water runs out, I'm gonna get my fill
until the water runs out, I'm gonna carry it up the hill
you're gonna wish you were
stone drunk, face down in the well
instead of waiting for the ship to come
through the dry spell

and I'm gonna pull my own ropes,
leave my anchor inside
you're gonna face your own surprise,
what you thought was your life
was just a room to occupy, epitomize
and criticize what you can't abide by,
at the very least, at the very least
you were here to try...

to occupy, epitomize,
and criticize what you can't abide by
at the very least, at the very least
you were here to try

what you thought was your life
was just a room to occupy...
