Lyrics

Any Fool Will Tell You
There’s an isolated island on an isolated lake
With an isolated undertow that really takes the cake
I’m trying to stay alive while I try to stay awake
Any fool will tell you that everything’s at stake
In the isolated harbor of the isolated lake
There stands an ancient theater where the song and dances shake
I took a peek behind the curtain and I saw a couple things
Every trick just slipped away while I waited in the wings
CHORUS
Any fool will tell you to always bend the rules
Any fool will tell you to always trust a fool
In the dead of night when the water’s calm
And your head says “stay afloat”
Any fool will tell you to always rock the boat
I got it on authority - this show is shutting down
When curtains fall and lights go dim and no one’s coming round
You can drag it out a couple weeks for vanity and pride
But any fool will tell you that momentum turns the tide
Any fool will tell you to always bend the rules
Any fool will tell you to always trust a fool
In the dead of night when the water’s calm
And your head says “stay afloat“
Any fool will tell you to always rock the boat
BRIDGE
I’ve been rolling with the punches
But the punch just makes me drunk
And I am stuck inside a paper bag
At the bottom of this trunk
And I’m lucky like a leper with my finger on the pulse
Of the stillness on the island
CHORUS
