Boat is the fourth track on Live From The Haunted Candle Shop. It was originally released on on June 13, 2003. Description

Aquamarine isn't just a color, it's a mineral. Isn't that something.


Once upon a time in a warehouse near a Mississippi ravine
There was a Theodore Roosevelt statue made of solid aquamarine
I have hollowed out quite a comfy living space inside of his head
They still don’t know I’m making the noise
They think it’s Teddy’s spirit instead

Here we go, top layer of cheese
Oh no, big hornets and bees
Speaking Japanese

I’m on fire, I’m on a grenade
Going faster than the Christmas Day parade
Without a doubt, and by far
The greatest way to travel ain’t by car
A E, I owe you sometimes, why?
Why not? you know me
I like to disagree

Once upon a time in Morocco, aliens came out of the sky
They said they wanted chocolate coins, they would not tell the president why
People gathered what they could and they put it all inside the alien craft
But it was not enough for the aliens so they killed everybody and laughed

Spring water, natural flavors
Pyridoxine hydrochloride
Citric acid, malic acid, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate
And cyanocobalamin, yeah

I’m on fire, I’m on big train
Going faster than Stephen Hawking’s brain
There is no way I can win
I won’t give up and that’s my only sin
A E, I owe you sometimes, why?
Why not? you know why, you know why

So row your boat down the stream
You know life is but a dream
You may sense a running theme
But it’s never what it seems to seem to be
Or it’s not
It’s exactly what you thought
But by then you had forgotten
The reason you were on that stupid yacht

(Chocolate coins, Chocolate coins…)
