Video here:

Some ships are solid vessels

That push through storms and heavy winds

And they carry crew and cargo

Bring them back home safe again

But them some ships aren’t good for much

And have to hug the shore

And I think you know what kind it is that you got tickets for

Some ships have many sails

Cut through the waves with grace

And they reach their destinations

At a slow and steady pace

But some ships they just sink like lead

Right to the ocean floor

And I know you know what kind it is

That you got tickets for

Some ships have got the blessings of the sky of the waves

and they keep their crew from slipping into watery graves

But some are cursed and crooked

And they are always gonna go

Down deep into the darkness waiting for them just below

Some ships got sorry captains

Who never learned how to steer

Who never learned how to use their eyes

Who how to use their ears

And they keep their ships filled up with scoundrels

And thugs and rats and whores

And I know you know what kind it is

That you got tickets for

Just look around just look around

This is what you bought tickets for
