"Ship of Fools" as written by and John Davies Cale....
Another bloody Monday
Thirty-nine just died
All hell breaks loose in the crowd
A hopeless helter skelter
Another mindless crime
Some corner of the world is burning down

Heading for a nervous breakdown
Can't take it anymore
I see the fear explode just like
A thousand nights before

The ship of fools
Keeps on rollin' through a deadly storm
It won't take long 'till we collide
The ship of fools
Keeps on following the siren's call
Damned to be sacrificed

Corrupt politicians
Promise paradise
The thieves are reaching out for the crown
Violence is a killer
Threatens all our lives
Judgment day has come here and now

Heading for a nervous breakdown
Can't take it anymore
I see the fear explode just like
A thousand nights before

The ship of fools
Keeps on rollin' through a deadly storm
It won't take long 'till we collide
The ship of fools
Keeps on following the siren's call
Damned to be sacrificed

Heading for a nervous breakdown
Can't take it anymore
I see the fear explode just like
A thousand nights before

The ship of fools
Keeps on rollin' through a deadly storm
It won't take long 'till we collide
The ship of fools
Keeps on following the siren's call
Damned to be sacrificed

The ship of fools
Keeps on rollin' through a deadly storm
It won't take long 'till we collide
The ship of fools
Keeps on following the siren's call
Damned to be sacrificed
