[???]
Crazy as I may
make my way through this world
it's for no one but me to say
which direction I should turn in
because I am the captain of this ship
eyes, eyelids and kissing lips

The same as it was
before we all got screwed up
say, though why should I
be hypnotized with time collecting [???]
hoping to build the lines of disguise
when I'm not so I'm not

You give, I won't go back again
you give, and you are
you give, play, oh I don't believe
stay, see me again, I'll strain

So here you and me play
oh hiding from deserted eyes, we say
oh, and tastelessly we stray
from the conventions that keep us blind
but if I choose to get higher
then why not let me fly?
I mean, if I choose to go at mine
then why not let me fly?

You give, this drove me back again
you give, plain lie
you give, and roll me
I don't believe it

Play, play, play me again
a surprise
so why will I listen?
please me,
I have to build nothing more than this
Captain
main lyrics
[Busted Stuff version]

Crazy as I may make my way through this world
It's for no one but me to say what direction I shall turn
I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
Day after day how I long for you my love how I long
Strange but it seems like there's a mutiny brewing inside me
But I don't want your pity only the promise that you'll stay with me tonight
Now I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
Day after day oh how I long for you like crazy
Oh our love - how you do me
Oh my love - come now lets go again
Oh our love - everything
Oh won't play with me again got all night
Same old song won't you come stay all my life after all
Oh how could I even try to fight after falling into your arms?
Oh mesmerized by your smile the way it lights up under your eyes
Oh how could I even try love won't you stay with me?
The same old song
Won't you come dance with me my love after all?

[2000 Studio Session version]

Crazy as I may
Make my way through this world
It's for no one but me to say
What direction I should turn in now

'Cause I am the captain of this ship
Wanting eyes and kissing lips
The same as it was
And will remain until I'm done
And gone

Strange, but it seems
There's mutiny brewing inside of me now
I don't want your pity
Just the promise that I'll be alright

'Cause I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
The same as it was
And will be until I'm gone

Oh
I know
I'm a dreamer
Still
Think its strange
I won't be long for here
Oh
But I know
That I feel
Wait and go again
Again

Oh look I'm buried
Like a cancer eating away inside of me
I don't want your pity
Only the promise that I'll be okay

Well, I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
The same as it was before here
Here
After all

Why should I be hypnotized
By the promise of a long life
Why should I hold hope in tiny, tiny dribbles that glide by
Why should I lean everything upon
I won't be here long

Oh
I know I'm a dreamer
Still seems a truth
I won't be long for here
Oh
It's so, but I think I'll lay this
On now your lips
I'm drowned

I am the Captain of
Oh
But I'll be okay after all
