No Sympathy For A Sinking Ship

This song is by United Nations and appears on the album United Nations (2008).

I have to confess.
I've made my bed, I'll sleep in it.
It's made with compromise.
I'll toss and turn, I'll twist and shout.
Captains of Industry,
It's time sail the seven seas.
I took the money twice with no regrets.
But you should think twice before you sign.

A check, a letterhead, a contribution to the dead,
To us, the delegates.
We spend and spend, we see no end.
And when were shaking hands,
I'm laughing, thinking of the times.
I'll give you bad advice and you will listen.
You should think twice.

Drinking kerosene and striking matches in your teeth!
Everybody gather round to see which way this goes...
All your life you've been a sinking ship
It's time to make you rise.
To make your mind up:
Sink or swim?

Sinking ship, oh sinking ship
You'll get away with it
Until they see which way the currents drift.

So don't come back again,
We've already seen the story's end.
Look for an answer
At the edge of the world.
Red eye.
