The Irishman

Waking up to the commotion on a sinking ship
I See the filthy unswabbed deck
I See the bow begin to tip
Down into the vast blue ocean
Rivets popping, metal rending
How can I protect you
When I’m saving my own neck?
Never stopping, neverending
Stare into the stars tonight
Feel the emotion
Breathe in the light
I’m not leaving without you
How could anyone miss you
When you’re shining so bright?

This vessel’s full of holes
Reality is leaking in
It’s time to play our roles
Nobody needs a Sheikh or King
We can all be heroes
That’s the secret everybody knows

The Irishman sank the Titanic
On St Patrick’s Day
So the prophecy once told
Could one man be so bold?
Garrisons of war are empty
Plunged into the Atlantic
Our soul will find a way
Love is automatic

Waking up in confusion on a hospital bed
It was all a delusion
I’m lucky I’m not dead
The medicine is helping
It’s all inside my head
The Titanic Matrix
It still lives on they said
Tyranny and war
It’s all inside my head
So the prophet said

Pull the wool over my eyes
Put me back in the cage
Tell me pretty little lies
Keep me off the stage
Give me something to believe in
More money will make me a powerful mage
Sell me the illusion
Silence me when my soul cries

Built by honest Irishmen
Sunk by the Crown
With the flick of a pen
When will the tyranny end?
Drifting to shore
Kissing the ground
I’ll always be sure
When you’re around
From where I’m looking
This ship’s run aground

Knock down your castles
Fill in your moats
Don’t make any hassles
We’ve got plenty of lifeboats

The Irishman
