    You're full of sh*t - we have never acted this way and continue to make the world a better place as generous Americans - who seek freedom and liberty for all. We are 2nd to none in the world conscientious about protecting our planet. You've obviously been fed and eaten up the liberal propaganda bs of white guilt. If you can't be proud, please get on board so your ship of fools can sink to the bottom of the sea! This song reminds me of our crappy politicians - who are truly fools! Be real and get a life.

    The ship of fools are all people who reject Christ, who is "the light of the world". They allow themselves to be led by Satan, "the joker and the fool". Notice how the song mentions various mortal sins. Interestingly enough, the song talks about building another "Sodom". How fitting it is, that as a country, the United States of America has institutionalized, rationalized, protected and promoted homosexuality, a deviant, immoral sexual practice that is scientifically proven to be a perversion. The USA has taken a stance against Jesus, enacting legislation that is truly antichrist. The chorus is a warning to the ungodly, and at the same time, a plea for salvation, a proclamation of repentance, seeking pardon from the fire and brimstone destruction that awaits all who reject Jesus, and live lives in disobedience to the Eternal Law of God.

    I am taking an Early American Literature class right now, and this song just keeps coming into my head. Ships of fools crossed the seas to this country (U.S.) not even knowing where they were going, most of them dying, then destroying most of the Native Americans with disease, slave labor, or murder, as well as raping what is now known as Haiti of every tree that grew there. We are still acting the same today, out of greed and selfishness; destroying the whole planet. We are acting as the song says-like a ship of fools.
