"Ship Lost at Sea" as written by and Alexander Greenwald....
Hey!
Arms of the ocean reach out for you!
Rusty pipes
Can't help calling for you too!
The brine is finer than wine,
But be careful not to drink too much,
'Cause there are remains on the bottom of that cup.

If you fear you've had enough
Of that salty stuff,
I'm on the beach
Reading a book.
Lost in a page.
Lost for an age.
I could be your bonfire
And you could be my ship out at sea

Look,
I'm not after your charity
And My Dear, I don't want you pleased with yourself
What is that feeling of pride
When you throw your coin in a beggar's cap?
Selfless acts are quite selfish when you think about 'em like that!
But I've been thinking of you
And how to improve.

'Cause I'm in a fix
And your heart is tool.
Help someone who's close!
Could be me, right?
Who knows?
You could be my handout,
And I'd be your good deed for the day

I want a puzzle I don't have to beat
A watch I don't have to wind
I really want to find your missing piece
And make it
Mine all mine all mine!

So If you're hopeless and beat,
Lower than your feet,
Or up to your neck,
Or down on your knees,
In way to deep,
And out of ideas
I can be your brainchild,
If you promise to take care of me.

Whoa,
I could be your bonfire
And you could be my ship out at sea!
I can be your boyfriend
And you can pretend not to know me!

    General CommentIt's simply about being infatuated with someone, and you know you're so amazingly out of their league, but you've accepted that.

    And you wouldn't mind at all if you were with them, and they pretended not to know you, because merely being with them is good enough for you.

    General CommentGoing with what Alex said the theme of the album was, I believe this is the leader of the cult talking to a confused person, telling him that he is here to help and he could provide some answers.

    General CommentThis song is definitely about two people in a relationship. One of them is just in the relationship because they think the other one is a charity case. Case in point: "I'd be your good deed for the day". But then, the relationship ends badly because this person is trying to constantly change their partner. And then, of course, "I can be your boyfriend, and you can pretend not to know me." It's very sad, if you think about it like that. This one guy, who thinks he's in love, and this girl is just going out with him because she thinks he needs her help.
