Ship of Fools
by Bob Seger
Tell me quick" said Old McFee, "What's this all have to do with me?", "I've spent all my time at sea a loner." "Is there something else I should know?", "Something hidden down below the level of your conversation?". Well he turned away before the answer. Though I yelled aloud he refused to hear. It became to clear........ So it went as we put out, I was left in constant doubt. Everything I asked about seemed private . The captain strolled the bridge one night, I stopped him in the evening light, to ask him would it be all right to join him?. But he stood there like some idol. And he listened like some temple. And then he turned away...... All along the fateful coast. We moved silent like a ghost. The timeless sea of tireless hope possessed us. The wind came building from the cold northwest, and soon the waves began to crest, crashing cross the forward deck, all hands lost. I alone survived the sinking! I alone possessed the tools! On that ship of fools!
