# I can't be

held responsible #

# For the things I say #

# For I am just #

# A vessel in vain #

# And I can't be

held responsible #

# For the things I see #

# For I am just #

# A vessel in vain #

# No boat out

on no ocean #

# No name there

on no hull #

# And it's not

a strain at all #

# To remember #

# Those that I've

left behind #

# They're all standing #

# Right here beside me now #

# And most of them #

# With a smile #

# My ideals #

# Have got me on the run #

# Towards my connection #

# With everyone #

# My ideals #

# Have got me on the run #

# Towards my connection #

# With everyone #

# My ideals #

# Have got me on the run #

# It's my connection #

# With everyone #

# Such free reign #

# For a vessel in vain #
