"all's well that ends well"

waiting for you to slip up
or for me to lose grip
if we were lost at sea
who'd abandon ship?
The captain's log
The crow's nest
A sinking ship to
The ocean's breast
Oh, captain
You've been drinking
Oh, captain
I've been sinking
The vertical bow to
The looming horizon
has me thinking, too
" t h i s
i s
i t ! "
cried the captain
to the sinking ship.
