  • [Verse 1:]
    Welcome to my ghost ship,
    The one I resurrected like the Black Pearl
    And had it stay afloat in
    And from the day I boarded on this vessel
    I feel as though I've done a lap of every single ocean
    And the seven seas too, but I got the wind on my sails and a good crew
    Of men who grew up in the same neighborhood I knew
    And I will turn to sail to where the sky's forever blue.
    Along the way I learned of lives I never knew
    And I can't shut my mouth, who am I to hide the truth
    But really, who am I, just a navigator
    Guided by the north star and now my time is due
    I'll keep floating down the river till you see a pale figure roll up saying how'd you do
    I'm like Columbus with the compass
    So let me move.

    [Hook:]
    I've been rowing down the river so long
    And I don't even know where I belong
    It's hard to find the right life in this song
    It's like my head feels tired but my heart's still strong.
    As life goes on, the river takes me different places,
    The fight goes on,
    This ship's lowering it's anchors,
    Cause I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.

    [Verse 2:]
    I started in a raft, I made into a craft,
    Then I was gone at the rasing of the mast,
    I've seen pain behind my craft,
    Cross paths and I see your ship alike like the Cutty Sark
    In the woods where the pirates throw
    In the water where the pirates dwell
    I never justify the odds I defied myself,
    I said I'll never make this, horrible scenario, shape shift, yeah
    And all my crews got a few stars like a Orion's Belt
    We make the pilgrimage here upon a river full of tears that were taken from lost souls
    Left to cry in hell, a cry for help,
    Is what this started as, but now my life's sick like the psychotic pitbull it's barking mad
    How I came from nothing, now I control the water ways your barge is banned

    [Hook:]
    I've been rowing down the river so long
    And I don't even know where I belong
    It's hard to find the right life in this song
    It's like my head feels tired but my heart's still strong.
    As life goes on, the river takes me different places,
    The fight goes on,
    This ship's lowering it's anchors,
    Cause I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.

    [Verse 3:]
    My mum gave birth south of the Thames,
    Then I float down to this ghost town, now I call my ends
    Where a county starts and the city ends
    And I learned to be careful when you're picking friends
    Between the few men we had to build a boat
    Lie it low, just to keep the dream afloat,
    A lot of people thought that it was washed up,
    Hence the reason why they looked like they've seen a ghost
    Call me Brook, call me Black Beard or Davy Jones,
    One captain that will send your whole navy home
    And I will never rest with my skeleton
    Therefore it's relevant you'll never call me lazy bones.
    So welcome to my ghostship
    That has promised me the one day it'll free my soul
    So when the tide comes in upon the beat you know who knows
    You know you might get to read my scrolls

    [Hook:]
    I've been rowing down the river so long
    And I don't even know where I belong
    It's hard to find the right life in this song
    It's like my head feels tired but my heart's still strong.
    As life goes on, the river takes me different places,
    The fight goes on,
    This ship's lowering it's anchors,
    Cause I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.
    So long, so long, I've been rolling down this river so long.
