Idlewild – Captain lyrics

This is my ideas for captain
A girl in a flower dress
Whos face is a real mess
She scribbles my words
She scribbles the real words
I'd rather these were not my words
I'd rather
That these were not my words
You say what
You are the captain what
Cos' I know how to live a lie
I know that you know I try
I know how to live a lie
I know you don't even try
I know how to live a lie
I know I don't even try
I know how to live a lie
You don't live a lie
And you don't try
And you live a lie
