World Party – Ship Of Fools lyrics

We're setting sail
To the place on the map from which no one has ever returned
Drawn by the promise of the joker and the fool
By the light of the crosses that burn
Drawn by the promise of the women and the lace
And the gold and the cotton and pearls
It's the place where they keep all the darkness you need
You sail away from the light of the world on this trip baby
Pay, you will pay tomorrow
You're gonna pay tomorrow
You will pay tomorrow
Save me, save me from tomorrow
I don't want to sail with this ship of fools, no no
Oh, save me, save me from tomorrow
I don't want to sail with this ship of fools, no no
I want to run and hide
Right now
Avarice and greed are gonna drive you over the endless sea
They will leave you drifting in the shallows
Drowning in the oceans of history
Travellin' the world, you're in search of no good
But I'm sure you'll build your Sodom like I knew you would
Using all the good people for your galley slaves
As your little boat struggles through the the warning waves
But you will pay, you will pay tomorrow
You're gonna pay tomorrow
You gonna pay tomorrow
Save me, save me from tomorrow
I don't want to sail with this ship of fools, no
Oh, save me, save me from tomorrow
I don't want to sail with this ship of fools, no
Where's it comin' from or where's it goin' to?
It's just a, it's just a ship of fools
All aboard

    You're full of shit - 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.

    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.
