"The Cruise" as written by and Matthew Kelly Sharp....
And we sing (out of tune)
Come on!
There's so many of you, so many people I see
So many of you that I'd like to meet
There's so many things we could do
If you only knew
Jump with you, sleep with you, cheat on our soulmates and find
That some people care and some they don't mind
It don't matter we do what we do
As we break on through
And we sing
Out of tune
We are on the cruise
(the cruise)
Optimistic right now, maybe I am
I know how so many people hate that
They'd rather see you lose
And drag you in the hole they're into
Jump with you, laugh with you, babble while they criticize
Let them say what they say, no I really don't mind
Just let them do what they do
As we break on through
And we sing
Out of tune
We are on the cruise
(the cruise)
Sleep with you
Deceive with you
Laugh with you
Break on through to the cruise
Yeah
And we sing
Out of tune
We are on the cruise
(the cruise)
(yeah)
There's so many of you, so many people I see
So many of you that I'd like to meet
So many things we could do on the cruise
We're on the cruise
We're on the cruise
We're on the cruise, we're on the cruise
We're on the cruise
(but mostly keep it alive)

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite Rentals Song. I think basically this is just a feel-good kind of song, wanting to go out and meet new people. This would have made a great second single to "Getting By."

    General CommentI think that this song might be referring to a extremley hard to find documentary called The Cruise. It is this documentary about this this new york tour guide, Anthony Speed Levitch, (you might know him from the bridge scene in Waking Life.) And...it's sort of hard to explain. I will get some quotes from it up here soon.

    General Commentthere is a demo version of this song, and during the quiet part after the breakdown there is a guy who is like, making this speech. in the final cut, the only part that stayed in was "but mostly we keep it alive" in the very end

    General CommentI think it is about just like... doing what you like and not worrying about it, you know? I have to say, I love the lines "Jump with you, sleep with you, cheat on our soulmates and find, some people care and some they don't mind."
