Gallows – Abandon Ship lyrics

Mayday Mayday
The captain lost control again
The fucking ship is breaking up
We're going down in flames
Mayday Mayday
Man overboard again
The sharks already circling
They only eat the brave
The SS Death lost everything
No one here can fucking swim
So baby, baby hold me tight
While I drown myself in you tonight
Mayday Mayday
The ship has hit the rocks again
This isn't going to fucking work
We're heading to our graves
Mayday Mayday
The captains lost his way we're sinking in the river sticks
No one can escape
Ladies and Gentlemen
May I have your attention please
This is the captain of your ship
I'm sorry we depart this way
You left me broken hearted
But I never loved you anyway
