Every Time I Die – Godspeed Us To Sea lyrics
Turns out I never had a thought at all.
I've been talking in my sleep,
Reciting teleprompted anthems.
A marionette strung tight to the executives upstairs.

I almost had myself convinced that I meant everything I said.
What a shame.
Oh captain, my captain,
You've been drinking.

What happened?
I've been slurring my cadences and blacking out when I stand.
I know about your son,
Who never did return from the war.

But there was poison in that bottle,
I tell you.
I'm coming out with my hands in the air.
And the voice that you're hearing,

Isn't me.
What you are hearing isn't mine.
There's been some horrible mistake.
I'm a proud god-fearing registered democrat.

This is all some elaborate scheme and it will be cleared up
When the governor beckons for me.
He'll clear my name.
It appears that the inmates have overrun the asylum.

There's a madman at the wheel.
We are not even remotely capable of keeping our heads about us.
We've abandoned all semblance of presence.
Dead bolted, buckled in.

Keeping our word to the sinking ship.
Let the rats orchestrate the new mutiny,
I'll met you overboard.
