I have to confess.
I've made my bed, I'll sleep in it.
It's made with compromises.
I'll toss and turn. I'll twist and shout.
Captains Of Industry.
It's time to Sail the Seven Seas.
I took the money twice with no regrets.
But you should think twice before you sign.

A check, a letterhead, a contribution to the dead,
To us, the delegates.
We spend and spend, we see no end.
And when we're shaking hands.
I'm laughing thinking of the times.
I'll offer bad advice and you still listen.
You should think twice.

Drinking kerosene and striking matches with your teeth!
Everybody gather round to see which way this goes...
All your life you've been a sinking ship. It's time to make you rise.
To make your mind up: Sink or Swim?
Sinking ship, oh sinking ship,
You'll get away with it until they see which way the currents drift.

So don't come back again, we've already seen the story's end.

Look for an answer at the edge of the world.
Redeye. Redeye. Redeye.
Goodnight.
