Robert Plant — Ship Of Fools lyrics

On waves of love my heart is breaking
And stranger still my self-control I can't rely on anymore.
New tide, surprise my world is changing.
Within this frame an ocean swells
Behind the smile I know it well.

Beneath a lover's moon I'm waiting
I am the pilot of the storm
Adrift in pleasure I may drown.
I built this ship; it is my making
And further more my self-control I can't rely on anymore.

I know why
I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools

Turn this boat around,
Back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no

Who claims that no man is an island?
While I land up in jeopardy
More distant from you by degrees
I walk this shore in isolation
And at my feet eternity
Draws ever-sweeter plans for me

I know why
I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools

Turn this boat around,
Back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no ship of fools

Turn this boat around,
Back to my loving ground
Oh no.

Crazy on a ship of fools
Oh, crazy on a ship of fools

Turn this boat around,
Back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no ship of fools
