about

Soak is the second single from the new Beerjacket album, Health Hour.

lyrics

The museum drowned after closing time
A self-destructive history
You can’t fool yourself or anybody else
You can’t fool yourself for anybody else
With your wealth of ghosts and burning boats
You’re a wreck of ruined royalty
You can’t change yourself or anybody else
You can’t change yourself for anybody else

You just soak in your misery
While you’re choking on tragedy
You’re just so good at self-injury
You’ve lost track of the time of your life

A liquid man dissolves his plans
A shelf of bottled ships lost at sea
You can’t love yourself or anybody else
You can’t love yourself for anybody else

You just soak in your misery
While you’re choking on tragedy
You’re just so good at self-injury
You’ve lost track of the time of your life

Do you know or don’t you care?
Are you even really there?
Is there something you forgot?
How did you turn out so wrong?
Do you know or don’t you care?
Are you even really there?
Is there something you forgot?
How did you turn out so wrong?

You just soak in your misery
While you’re choking on tragedy
You’re just so good at self-injury
You’ve lost track of the time of your life.

You’ve lost track of the time of your life.
