And I'm standing up in my practice room
I'm all alone
Speakers almost blown
On my new Gibson amp
Oh, what the hell

Things are not so different in my vocal master
You're the face that launched one thousand shits
Greeks and Trojans and the thousand shits
The shits lining the shores of Asia Minor
Lining all the shores of Asia Minor
You can tell that I'm not a minor in Asia no more
I'm standing up

This is the face that launched a thousand shits
I'm standing up
This is the face that launched one thousand shits
This is the face that shot
Who never have replaced
Splitting up his kingdom into three separate parts
For his sons and their three separate hearts

    General Commentactually, if you slow down the tempo to the song, and listen to it, it does say "shits." either way, it's a good song.

    General CommentI have to say, that the lyrics above appear to be corrcet. I mailed the fellahs at Death Cab and they're in agreement with those ones. See they're e-mal at the site

    General Commenthmm. i believe the song is called "the face that launched 10,000 shits" so it would make sense that the lyric is shits, but that just doesn't make sense. ships does make more sense, but i'm pretty sure he's saying shits.

    General CommentBen wrote the lyrics... he should know. Not any of you. It's "shits." Who cares if it makes sense? The song is good nonetheless.

    General Commentactually, ben didn't write the lyrics. if you'll look in the cd sleeve of "something about airplanes", it notes this. if i'm not mistaken, it is a cover of a revolutionary hydra song.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it should also say "speaker's almost blown on my new Gibson amp."
