Bailout Blogging Music: World Party’s Ship of Fools

Lyrics:

We’re setting sail to a place on the map
From which no-one has ever returned
Drawn by the promise of the joker and the fool
By the light of the crosses that burned
Drawn by the promise of the wormen and lace
And the gold and the cotton and pearls
It’s the place where they keep all the darkness you need
You sail away from the light of the world on this trip, baby

You will pay tomorrow
You’re gonna pay tomorrow
You will pay tomorrow

Oh, save me, save me from tomorrow
I don’t want to sail with this Ship of Fools, no, no
Oh, save me, save me from tomorrow
I don’t want to sail with this Ship of Fools
I want to run and hide
Right now

Avarice and greed are gonna drive you over the endless sea
They will leave you drifting in the shallows
Drowning in the oceans of history
Traveling the world, you’re in search of no good
But I’m sure you’ll build your Sodom like you knew you would
Using all the good people for your galley slaves
As your little boat struggles through the warning waves
But you don’t, pay

You will pay tomorrow
You’re gonna pay tomorrow
You’re gonna pay tomorrow

Oh, save me, save me from tomorrow
I don’t want to sail with this Ship of Fools, no, no
Oh, save me, save me from tomorrow
I don’t want to sail with this Ship of Fools, no, no

Where’s it coming from
Oh, Where’s it going now
It’s just a, it’s just a Ship of Fools

I miss the music of the 80’s.

  1. Brilliant!

    But don’t you realize that the smoking gun may come in the form of a mushroom cloud, and there is not one day to lose????

    Perhaps you are unpatriotic for not believing in the Cheney Financial Doctrine — that if there is a 1% chance of an intervention averting a disaster, we have to treat it like a 100% chance??

  2. Heh…I think I will post their song Revolution later.

  3. That line…

    “that the smoking gun may come in the form of a mushroom cloud, and there is not one day to lose”

    …where I have heard that? Is that Bush? Or is that a song?

  4. Here’s a funny song about the bailout. Whoever thought you could make the Wall Street mess sound sexy?
