Oh, Neptune, I’m worn out and feeling spare
Oh, Mother, I promise that I’ll get there
A little groan and I lift my body up another time
Make it creak and stretch and settle and align
The radio fills the room with awful words

Oh, Neptune, you tried to hide
A quiet yearn for the simple life
But you can’t change an orbit and expect to stay disguised
And you can’t build a bridge without the other side
You had bought a life that I was renting

I would ask you to tell that story one more time
But I know it makes you sigh and then resign
To be the bore you never dreamt you’d be
To be the one who longs to return to the sea
Oh, Neptune, I am sad to see you leave
