"Death Ship" as written by and Faulkner/radalj/sharples....
I am the captain of a ghostly crew,
Sail the seven seas with nothing to do.
The girl that I thought was untrue
Really loved me. Boo, hoo, hoo.

Near hidden reefs we appear in the gloom
Luring mariners to their doom.
As we're condemned, we condemn others too.
Who would love me? Who? Would You?
I'm asking you.

I'm on the Death Ship,
I sail the seas alone.
Death ship, I can call no port home.
Lost souls cry to hell in the wind
Let us in, let us in, let us in!

I need somebody who will die for me
To free me of this misery.
I need someone who will cry for me
Really love me. Really.

    General CommentThe singer is using the metaphor of a ghost ship for his life. He was in love with a woman, but heard a false rumor about her being untrue. After leaving her, he's now lonely and wants someone else in his life. However, word of his mistrust is everywhere, so no woman wants him. He feels cursed and adrift in a sea of mistrust.
