Get out!

It doesn’t matter
which way you run
when on a sinking ship

Your return ticket
just got upgraded
to a one-way-no-return trip

All the screaming and shouting
sulking and pouting
won’t get you off the boat

The anchor, the compass
the captain, the crew
They won’t keep you afloat

What’s left to do
but to accept your fate?
OR race through to aft;

Gather your loved ones
Gather your courage
and get into the life raft!
