lyrics

HE GREW UP IN A SIMPLE LAKE TOWN
IN A HOUSE BY THE WATER
WHERE HIS BEST FRIEND DROWNED
WHERE HE CAUGHT HIS FIRST FISH
LEARNED HOW TO SWIM LEARNED HOW TO KISS
HE STANDS BY THE SHORE ON THE DAYS
WHEN THE WATER LIES FLAT AS A WINDOW PANE
WITH A HANDFUL OF DREAMS
THAT HE SENDS DOWNSTREAM

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HES TRYING TO MAKE A SPLASH
PUT RIPPLES ON THE LAKE
TRYING TO BREAK THE GLASS
HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HIS BEST YETS BEEN 35 SKIPS
SO HES FIXED ON GETTING 36

HE WALKS IN THE SHALLOWS BY THE DOCK
IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT ROCK
WITH THE PERFECT SIZE THE PERFECT WEIGHT
THE PERFECT TEXTURE THE PERFECT SHAPE
HE TAKES AIM FOCUSES COCKS IT
SIDEARM WHIPS WRIST FLICKS LIKE A ROCKET
THEN A TRAIL OF DOTS PERSISTENTLY
LEADS OFF INTO THE DISTANCE

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
TRYING TO MAKE A SPLASH
PUT RIPPLES ON THE LAKE
TRYING TO BREAK THE GLASS
HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HIS BEST YETS BEEN 35 SKIPS
SO HES FIXED ON GETTING 36

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES

HES UNSEEN UNKNOWN
ALL ALONE WITH HIS PERFECT STONES
BUT HE THROWS THEM LIKE THEY MATTER
MORE THAN EVERYTHING YOURE AFTER
HES BETTER AT WHAT HE DOES
THAN ANYONE YOU KNOW EVER WAS
AT ANYTHING THAT THEY EVER DID
ALTHOUGH HE HAS NO WITNESSES

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HES TRYING TO MAKE A SPLASH
PUT RIPPLES ON THE LAKE
TRYING TO BREAK THE GLASS
HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HIS BEST YETS BEEN 35 SKIPS
SO HES FIXED ON GETTING 36

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
