lyrics

Just heard the news today oh boy
Three thousand dead and thousands more to blame
But you can't always trust the news
It's just a mindless fishing game
Where the captain owns a mansion
And the skipper drives a Porsche
And at night they play canasta
And they think of what's gone wrong
As they silently float

There once was a chance
When the sun rose up
To fly over the sea
Where Eden's waiting for me
The shoreline opens its eyes
With brilliant rays of light
It warms the flesh and soul
And the cycle begins again
Back to where we began
As if a moth to the light
He was drawn to the night
Where substance makes him numb

The captain takes a pail
As the skipper takes his fill
As we're waiting out the storm
And the skipper thinks that life
Is to short for all this strife
As he writes his portfolio
And the captain takes a stand
As he has nothing to lose
Only wearing his own shoes
And he says all engines on
And all phasers set to stun
At the edge of the world

There once was a chance
When the sun rose up
To fly over the sea
Where Eden's waiting for me
The shoreline opens its eyes
With brilliant rays of light
It warms the flesh and soul
And the cycle begins again
Back to where we began
As if a moth to the light
He was drawn to the night
Where substance makes him numb
