May It Last

There is a sea and I am a captain
Of something unknown, waves high as mountains
There is a key and there is a lie
Here's to times that I catch it
May it last through the night

I'm as low as they come
I'm what shouldn't be done
Filthy and lost
Still up for trying
You're the one reason why
I look up and smile
Wishing alone
And I'm ready to forge ahead

There is a sea and I am a captain
Of something unknown, waves high as mountains
There is a key and there is a lie
Here's to times that I catch it
May it last through the night

Dark thoughts are hidden
Masked in the shadows
Times they estrange
Colors are full
We all will fit in
Climb in our armor
Traveling fast
The judgement is past
Now it's time to go on

There is a sea and I am a captain
Of something unknown, waves high as mountains
There is a key and there is a lie
Here's to times that I catch it
May it last through the night

Limbs that won't turn
When the fire won't burn
Like it did when we felt it
Deep in our hearts
Untie the rudder
Guide them away
Take me off sir
Take me off sir

There is a sea and I am a captain
Of something unknown, waves high as mountains
There is a key and there is a lie
Here's to times that I catch it
May it last through the night
