about

In places where flooding is common, there are often signs that show how high the water has reached in the past. You know you're in serious trouble when the water gets all the way up to the high water mark. We've all been in situations where one thing after another goes wrong until the mess becomes so enormous we lose faith in our ability to overcome it. Like The Cat In The Hat's Thing One and Thing Two, sometimes we just need a little help to find our way through to the other side of chaos.

lyrics

I've hit the high-water mark.
I've had just about as much as I can take.
I should have known right from the start
that this would turn into a big mistake.
And it's been raining for days now
and the pressure's on for the damn to break!

I've hit the end of the road
There ain't no more highway left to drive.
And I've been cruising for days now,
Just looking for a way to survive.
And with this rain coming down,
I'm just trying to keep myself alive!

I'm up to my neck in an ocean of shit.
No idea what the heck to do about it.
My options for action are running out fast.
I'm treading water for now, but how long can I last?

I'm at the end of my rope.
Oh, I ain't got another thread to spare.
I'm starting to lose hope.
Baby, I'm barely even able to care.
And if this rain keeps falling,
I'm going to sink below the surface in despair!

I'm up to my neck in an ocean of shit.
No idea what the heck to do about it.
My options for action are running out fast.
I'm treading water for now, but how long can I last...?
