"Sully" lyrics - BO BURNHAM


Sully suffers from a stutter,
Simple syllables will clutter,
Stalling speeches up on beaches,
Like a sunken sailboat rudder.

Sully strains to say his phrases,
Sickened by the sounds he raises,
Strings of thoughts come out in knots,
He solves his sentences like mazes.

At night, he writes his thoughts instead
And sighs as they steadily rush from his head.
