[Verse 1]
Pardon my interjection
But nobody here's seen land in awhile
You got a blind man in the crow's nest
Your first mate hails from the state of denial

[Prechorus 1]
I do place faith in this vessel
But none of this mess will
Eradicate itself
Hazard and peril especial
I'm placing a distress call
This is a cry for help

[Chorus]
My captain, my captain
It's not my fault
I swear there's more than a
Couple circumstances involved
But between you and the plank
I think I'd rather take the walk
My captain, my captain
I got on board
But that was long before
I understood what I was in for
Go down with the ship if you want
But I'm gonna swim for shore
Yes, I'm sure

[Verse 2]
We stopped facing forward to
Glance back on what we overcame
The nausea's taking over
But these tempestuous seas ain't to blame

[Prechorus 2]
But if tomorrow the starboard
Is tied to the harbor
My sincerest apologies
But the waves, they hit sharper
And the days just get harder
Neither one is showing signs of release

[Repeat Chorus x2]
