  • Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row
    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row

    Moving is breathing and breathing is life
    Stopping is dying
    You'll be alright
    Life is a hammer waiting to drop
    Drifting the shallows and the rowing won't stop

    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row
    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row

    Can't see the sky, nothing's on the horizon
    Can't feel my hands and the water keeps risin'
    Can't fall asleep 'cause I wake up dead
    I just keep polling, I just keep rowing

    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row
    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row

    Rowing is living and living is hard
    But living beats losing all that we are
    All that we know of, and all that we feel
    All we remember, imagine the real
    All we remember, imagine the real

    Hey!

    I heard an echo but the answer had changed
    From the word I remembered
    That I started out sayin'
    Living is cheating if you're not pulling oars
    The current is leaving
    I'll get mine
    You get yours

    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row
    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row

    Hey!

    Rowing is bleeding, bleeding is breathing
    Breathing is feeling, running, and freezing
    We're getting dirty but I started out clean

    Keep on rowing and
    Keep on rowing and
    Keep on polling and
    Keep on polling and
    Keep on rowing and
    Keep on rowing and
    Keep on rowing and
    Keep on rowing and
    Keep on rowing
    Keep on rowing

    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row
    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row

    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row
    Don't know where I'm going I just keep on rowing
    I just keep on polling, gotta row
