on this day i was wondering just what made the sky blue
i was thinking if i'd ever leave this place
i saw the storm pass overhead along the sky
you'll be gone on that day i know
i'll be coming home on these ships of gold
i never knew the lies you said were true
and i never knew that all the ships had holes
and i never knew this life was all for you
i didn't know i'd ever get this far
i never knew all these ships had holes
i didn't know i'd reach this far to sink
i didn't know i never knew
i didn't know....

    General Commentlove how it plays with the first song on the album, "we always knew" . . . the turn at the end sends chills down my spine ( "i never knew" in that faint weak voice ). deceit in manner and form, expressed on many levels.
