"You're the Captain" as written by Donald N. Van Zant and Jeffrey S. Carlisi....
I'd crawl a mile
I'd climb the highest hill
To bring you back to
A life that's real
You burned your mind out
With your foolish games
May you lie there helpless
Will you ever be the same

You're the captain
The leader of your ship
Don't get captured (captured)
Cause you just might never quit
You're the captain
I hope you realize
Don't be a fool
Better open up your eyes

I've traveled this world
I've seen most of it
I've seen the best ones
Go down with the ship
Fortune and fame
They don't mean a thing
When you're hooked on junk
That's your only game

You're the captain
The leader of your ship
Don't get captured (captured)
Cause you just might never quit
You're the captain
I hope you realize
Don't be a fool
Better open up your eyes

Just a part of life
That we all must go through
Gettin' high with friends
Was all in being cool
Hope you never see, this misery
A prisoner by drugs
With no right to be free

You're the captain
The leader of your ship
Don't get captured (captured)
Cause you just might never quit
You're the captain
I hope you realize
Don't be a fool
Better open up your eyes

You're the captain
The leader of your ship
Don't get captured (captured)
Cause you just might never quit
You're the captain
I hope you realize
Don't be a fool
Better open up your eyes
