Crazy as I may
Make my way through this world, oh
It's for no one but me to say
What direction I should turn in now

'Cause I am the captain of this ship
Wanting eyes and kissing lips
The same as it was
And will remain until I'm done
And gone

Strange, but it seems
There's a mutiny brewing inside of me now
I don't want your pity
Just the promise that I'll be alright

'Cause I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
The same as it was
And will be until I'm gone

Oh, I know I'm a dreamer
Still think it's strange
I won't be long for here
Oh, I know that I feel, oh
Wait and go again
Again...

Oh, look, I'm buried
Like a cancer eating away inside of me
I don't want your pity
Only the promise that I'll be okay now

But I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
The same as it was before here
Here, back
After all

Why should I be hypnotized
By the promise of a long life?
Why should I hold hope
In tiny, tiny dribbles that glide by?
Why should I lean everything upon...
I won't be here long...

Oh, I know I'm a dreamer
Still seems a truth
I won't be long for here
Oh, it's so, but I think I lay this
On now your lips
I'm drowning

I am the Captain of...
Oh...
But, I'll be okay after all.
