I wish it had slipped right through the cracks
All of the times you've stabbed my back
I've got the scars to prove that
You've been there before, at least once or twice.
Captain, we're taking on the sea
The water is where I'm meant to be
Comfortable speed, ourstretch your arms
Promising nothing will go wrong

But why are we here now?
"My dear sir, you ask too many questions."

To fathom where this crew will be
In another twenty years
We've bailed, we've shepwrecked even
Before we left the port of Morrison.

I wish it had fallen like the stars
That shed the light atop the shards
I've got the scars to prove that
You've been there before, at least once or twice
But now these battles never cease
The water means little, now, to me
Comfortable speed, outstretch your arms
As water rises to our throats

But why are we here now?
"My dear sir, you ask too many questions."
Captain McGovern, where did your best years go?
Did they drown with your hopes and dreams?

A hollow shell of a man
Well, that is what you've become
This whole family is falling apart
Whether you see it or not.
Dearest Captain McGovern,
Where did your best years go?
A life is a life that
Isn't built to live a life alone at sea.
