Lyrics

Captain Captain

Ghost caught in the distance got his eyes on me
All our best moments wasted on this sea
Like all the others possessed by what we lack
Sending out ships that never come back

To hell with your hopes
Means nothing to me
Your prayers ain’t good enough
They want you down on your knees
You’re pulling up the anchor
Begging to be free
But They’ll never stop
Never let you be

No sign of the shoreline – the North Star growing dim
Compasses are broken and there’s cruelness in the wind
No food left in the galley and the sky is growing black
Sending out ships that never come back

Your tracks here in my sand will soon be washed away
You’re chasing down the past trying to buy another day
Like all the others possessed by what they lack
Sending out ships that never come back

Captain Captain I’m letting you down
Captain Captain I’m letting you drown.

Gooding
