Ship Of Fools

Original songwriter: Karl Wallinger

We're setting sail to the place on the map

From which no one has ever returned

Drawn by the promise of the joker and the fool

By the light of the crosses that burn

Drawn by the promise of the women and the lace

And the gold and the cotton and pearls

It's the place where they keep all the darkness you need

You sail away from the light of the world on this trip baby

You will pay tomorrow you're gonna pay tomorrow

You will pay tomorrow oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Save me save me from tomorrow

I don't want to sail with this ship of fools no no

Oh, save me save me from tomorrow

I don't want to sail with this ship of fools no no no

I want to run and hide right now

Ooh nah nah nah nah nah ooh nah nah nah nah nah

Avarice and greed are gonna drive you over the endless sea

They will leave you drifting in the shallows

Or drowning in the oceans of history

Travelin' the world you're in search of no good

But I'm sure you'll build your Sodom like I knew you would

Using all the good people for your galley slaves

As your little boat struggles through the warning waves

But you don't pay you will pay tomorrow

You're gonna pay tomorrow yeah

You gonna pay tomorrow oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Save me save me from tomorrow

I don't want to sail with this ship of fools no no no no

Oh, save me save me from tomorrow

I don't want to sail with this ship of fools no no no no

Where's is it comin' from

Oh where's it goin' to it's just a

It's just a ship of fools oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Here we go yeah, all aboard yeah

Ttah tah tah dah dah dah dooh deeh dah

Tah tah tah tah tah dah doh doh dah woah oh oh oh oh
