SHIPS IN THE NIGHT

 

Summer passed by before I could bat an eye

Tequila sunsets and bleak sunrises

There are no more long days now, no more prize fighting

I’ll even give up on the drinking, just please no more surprises

I see her wave to me, covered it from A to Z

With a look so heavenly that she’s no longer giving me

 

Ships pass by outside the window in my room

They only know where they’ve been and where they’re going to

They pass so mightily, steady in their gaze

They pass by each other without so much as a wave

Ships in the night are we, convinced we’re gonna be

Reunited come the day

 

My brother, how you been while I’ve been blinded by my own

Worries and stories and this sense that I’m alone

Heaven zips by a million more ships in the night

And and trillion tons of gases from a billion silly asses

And I still pray for the masses as we fight the bloody fight

But bodies cannot stop these jacked up, gakked up ships in the night

 

And I reach out in the darkness for some body I might hold

I reach out to the cosmos by staring at my phone

I reach a state of ecstasy, I return to despair

I remain educated, well-informed, and unaware

But my sister, my sister, I swear that I am good

Reach your arms around me and tell me that I’m understood

 

I can’t believe the things for which I'm forced to take a stand

I can’t believe that I’m the problem, not the plan

I can’t believe that we elected that man

Yes I can, yes I can, yes I can, yes I can

Ships in the night are we, miss other entirely

From cradle to the grave without so much as a wave

 

And my my, hey hey, looks like the sky is falling down

No, it's my time, it's your time, it's all just coming 'round

Run up the mountain and hide out while you can

There's a storm coming full of lonely disaffected angry men

And father time knows the way the cancer grows inside of me

And who will hold my hand when I'm in my final bed

 

When ships in the night are we

Ships in the night are we

Miss each other entirely

Ships in the night are we

Someone shine your light on me

Someone shine your light on me

Ships in the night are we
