The sun is in the sky
And it is gonna be a glorious day, huh
So pour yourself a coffee
Put your clothes back on and tell me your name
Now hearts are getting broken
But I guess it's what they call growing up
We don't expect results
Because the kids around here don't give a fuck

Nothing really matters, nothing really matters at all
When all your dreams are shattered, everything is beautiful
Nothing ever happens, they think we waste our lives but they're wrong, we're moving on

(Everybody knows)
You know the ships going down
(Everybody knows)
Oh, with sailor jerrys around
(Everybody knows)
We're gonna die in this town

Hey!
Wooooah

My voice is gone for screaming
And my body aches from giving them hell
(na na na na, na na na na)
You gotta know the truth
That we're not in this for the cash but it helps
(na na na na, na na na na)

Nothing really matters, nothing really matters at all
When all your dreams are shattered, everything is beautiful
Nothing ever happens, they think we waste our lives but they're wrong, we're moving on

Yeah

(Everybody knows)
You know the ships going down
(Everybody knows)
Oh, with sailor jerrys around
(Everybody knows)
We're gonna die in this town

Yeah

(Everybody knows)
Hey!
(Everybody knows)
Oh yeah!
(Everybody knows)
We're gonna die in this town

You know!
You know!

(Everybody knows)
You know the ships going down
(Everybody knows)
Oh, with sailor jerrys around
(Everybody knows)
We're gonna die in this town

(Hey)
(Woooah)
Oh, we're gonna die in this town

    General CommentI slighty agree with the comment from emobear07. It dies in with the obscene way this song goes.
    I love McFly for that.

    General Commentyeah, i think it's 'hell', but it's SO 'shit' not 'ship'! Why would they be singing about a ship going down? Listen to it really closely! (if you're as sad as me haha..)
