Same Boat – Matt Caplan

I know somebody taught me
Patience is a virtue, and I’ll need it
But all this waiting is distorting my perspective
Feels like I’ve been waiting now for twenty years
Waiting for a soul who cares
And I know, with any luck, I’ll find an open door
‘Cause I know that I can’t fuck my life up any more

Just as long as I know I’m a better man for believing that I can
Just as long as I know someone else is in the same boat with me

I know somebody taught me
Ignorance is bliss to those who fear/bear it
But this stupidity is festering like garbage
Clouding up my world with its contagious flare
Now there’s stupid people everywhere
So I preach with a guitar and with a ballpoint pen
And this (something) again

Just as long as I know I’m a better man for believing that I can
Just as long as I know someone else is in the same boat with me

Who on earth should give a damn
When I am finally six feet under
And light years higher
Who in heaven notices when
I do not attend a meeting Sunday morning
So I’ll try to be a man a God might be proud of
And I’ll try to set examples and to rise above
Just as long as I know it is not a sham
To believe in who I am
Just as long as I know someone else is in the same boat with me
