set to go
they're leaving on the next boat, they said
i don't want to know you
i don't even know you anymore

i'm not coming back
i'll fill my ship with empty men
searching for the place nearest the end

fly sailboat fly sailboat fly (sailboat fly)
i built a crew that will man you
i built a crew
we won't take you home

set to go
i'm leaving when the next boat goes
i don't even know you anymore

i left a note
it lists all of the reasons
that i never want to grow up at all

fly sailboat fly sailboat fly (sailboat fly)
i built a crew that will man you
i built a crew
we won't take you home

first mates gonna be the kind of guy
the kind of guy that takes it out of here
second mates gonna believe
the second mates gonna believe in anything
third mates got a girl he loves
he's got a girl he loves he loves he loves he loves
fourth mates got the time of day
to find an old guitar and play away
five and six and seven, eight
they all believe we're all the same
nine and ten and on and on
they all believe we're always wrong, they go

(oh...)
the ship's sound
(oh...)
the sea sings
(oh..)
and god said
(oh..)
god said

first is the way things go
two is where your heart goes
three and four they know so much more
five is what we can change
six is how things tend to end
and on and on
we all fall hard
