The Boat Dreams From the Hill
24 Hour Revenge Therapy LP/CD

Boat on a hill, never going to sea.
Anchored to a fixer upper's dream.
This boat is beat, never gonna be a boat now.
Thirsty, sees the sea from high on ice plant.

He keeps patching it and painting.
Thinking about his pension plan.
But the boat is out to pasture.
Seems it never had a chance.

I wanna be a boat.
I wanna learn to swim.
Then I'll learn to float.
Then begin again.
Begin again.

Boat remembers the carpenter's sure hand.
Missing fishy flutter on it's rudder.
Sold at an auction, on the dolly ever since.
Sometimes rainy days drop boyish wonder.

He keeps patching it and painting.
Thinking about his pension plan.
But the boat is out to pasture.
Seems it never had a chance.

I wanna be a boat.
I wanna learn to swim.
Then I'll learn to float.
Then begin again.
Begin again.



Notes:
Blake introduced the song as "Boat" in live shows from 1992 and early 1993.
Early 1992 versions contain vocals all the way to the end of the song. Blake rambles the following words somewhat incoherently in one performance:
  "I want to be a boat. I'll swim and ___ in ___ water.
  ___ ___ ___ do ___ thing I used to.
  I thought I had a purpose. I was born for something better.
  ___ ___ ___ ___. ___ ___ ___ __ ____."

Another performance shortly thereafter contains similar but slightly different lyrics in this section.
