I look around and I see nothing but the dead.
Thought they were angels
But there's nothing above their heads.
The real world came crashing through the door,
Who'd knew we'd become the children of war.
Thrown into a holding cell
A waiting room for heaven or hell.
We tried to make mice out of men.
We only strengthened the ones we sought to contend.

Ship of fools, all aboard the ship of fools.
We blindly follow all the rules on the ship of fools.
All aboard the ship of fools.
If we're always compassionate,
How are we supposed to turn a profit?

Poisoned words spew from poisoned tongues.
We have the answer but have to convert the young.
Dying is the best way to make a living.
Works for us don't think of it as giving in.
Well ready, set, here's the fun.
Punch the clock and grab yourself a gun.
This will be our finest hour
As we stumble around drunk with power.

Ship of fools, all aboard the ship of fools.
We blindly follow all the rules on the ship of fools.
All aboard the ship of fools.
In the depths of the deep blue sea,
You're going over the side if I find you disagree.

Well we fastened ourselves to our fate
And we want to change our minds, but it's just too late.
And we gave them a chance to take the upper hand.
We didn't think they'd really take a stand.

Ship of fools, all aboard the ship of fools.
We blindly follow all the rules on the ship of fools.
All aboard the ship of fools.
In the depths of the deep blue sea,
Well I better not catch you laughing at me.
Ship of fools, all aboard the ship of fools.
We blindly follow all the rules on the ship of fools.
On the ship of fools, all aboard the ship of fools.
Well I sail around the sea making sure everyone thinks like me.
