This is my ideas for captain - a girl in a flower dress, her face is a real mess - you scramble my words
She scrambles the real words
I'd rather, I'd rather these are not my words
I'd rather, I'd rather, I'd rather, I'd rather X3
I'd rather - that these are not my words
You say what? You say what? You are the captain what? You say what? You say what? You are the captain what?

What is your ideas for captain ? Whose in a golden dress, whose face is a real mess - you scramble my words
She scrambles the real words
I'd rather, I'd rather these are not my words
I'd rather, I'd rather, I'd rather, I'd rather X3

I'd rather - That these are not my words

You say what? You say what? You are the captain what? You say what? You say what? You are the captain what? You say what? You say what? You are the captain what? Yes you are the captain

I know how to live a lie, I know you don't even try to I know how to live a lie, I know you don't even try to I know how to live a lie, I know you don't even try to I know how to live a lie, you don't live a lie, you don't live a lie You don't live a lie, you don't live a lie, you don't live a lie

You say what? You say what? You are the captain what? You say what? You say what? You are the captain what? You say what? You say what? You are the captain what? You are the captain

I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired
And you don't try, and you live a lie
And you don't try

    General CommentI love this song, I wish it had been the first Idlewild song I ever heard. It's not much good but Roddy Woomble's lyrics really grab me even though they're mostly shit and overindulgent. I bet he's done a theoryful degree and like the rest of us has no idea how to put it to good use.
