Lullaby for the Working Class

The Man vs The Tide

Lullaby for the Working Class

I built me a raft
Out of the trees
Picked the tallest ones
The ones that grew up with me

I tied my raft
With the tallest vines
Picked the strongest ones
Ones I haven't yet squeezed dry


Safely floating away
My lantern dim
With a wick I didn't light
I never even asked for a light

Serenading the sky
Under an audience of seagulls
This blue sky
Will I ever attain
This blue sky
Will I ever attain it
This blue sky
Will I ever attain you
Blue sky
