Ship of Fools

Famous disappearing act
Kills ‘em every time
The willing subject sneaks out back
And leaves her space behind

But life is not a parlour trick
There’s no slight of hand
Just tryin’ to save the sinking ship
And there’s not sight of land

And we are all in the same boat, darlin’
On the same rough sea
We are all in the same boat, darlin’
The ship of fools it seems

There’s no good news in the news
Only bad news papers
As black humour stands amused
At the plight of human nature

There’s still a lot of good in the world
No matter what they say
And when the darkness comes unfurled
There’s a light that was built to stay

And we are all in the same boat, darlin’
On the same rough sea
We are all in the same boat, darlin’
The ship of fools it seems

Optimists and realists
And cynics all agree
That we are all in this
Together whatever will be

Oh we are all in the same boat, darlin’
On the same rough sea
We are all in the same boat, darlin’
The ship of fools it seems

Oh we are all in the same boat, darlin’
On the same rough sea
We are all in the same boat, darlin’
The ship of fools it seems
