Music Monday: Float by Flogging Molly

To kick off Villar Neuropsychology’s New Music Mondays, please enjoy Float by Flogging Molly.



So often in our attempts to cope with pain, stress, or sadness we are tempted by temporary pleasures, denial, or avoidance, which can cause us greater harm in the long-term. We must always remember to avoid self-sabotage during times of distress by remaining aware of our worth, strengths, ideals, and goals. By remaining positive, utilizing available tools and supports, and focusing on solutions, we give ourselves the power to better handle even the worst of situations. Above all, we need to remain mindful of what are options are and do the best we can within the circumstances.


Float by Flogging Molly

Drank away the rest of the day,

I wonder what my liver'd say

Drink, that's all you can


Blackened days with their bigger gales

Blow in your parlor to discuss the day

Listen, that's all you can


But don't, no, don't sink the boat

That you built, you built to keep afloat

No, don't, don't sink the boat that you built


Sick and tired of what to say,

No one listens anyway

Sing, that's all you can


Rambling years of lousy luck,

You miss the smell of burning turf

Dream, that's all you can


But don't, no, don't sink the boat

That you built, you built to keep afloat

No, don't, don't sink the boat

That you built, that you built to keep afloat


Singled out for who you are,

It takes all types to judge a man

Feel, that's all you can


Filthy suits with bigot ears

Hide behind their own worst fears

Live, that's all you can

It's all you can

It's all you can do


No matter where I put my head,

I'll wake up feeling sound again

Breathe, that's all you can


Tomorrow smells of less decay,

The flowers greet this blooming fray

Be thankful, that's all you can


But don't, no, don't sink the boat

That you built, you built to keep afloat

No, don't, no, don't sink the boat

That you built, that you built to keep afloat


A ripe old age, a ripe old age

I'm a ripe old age, that's what I am…

A ripe old age, just doing the best I can

The best I can
