Down With the Ship - Nine Days

Well it's been past four years since we went down in flames
In the mouth of the lion's den
While we held our heads
We held our breath
And one by one we lost our only friends
We traveled in fast company and kept up with the pace
But that's no guarantee that we could ever win this race

We don't ask for much
Just a little to get by
Enough to keep us grounded while the rest are getting high
And while we play hard, while we keep it real
Search for water in this desert, we don't have to steal

We'll go down with the ship
The captain's of our destiny
We'll get on our way
With the wind against our backs
We'll go down with the ship
Before we hand it over
Said over and over
Again

We don't have much longer before we say goodbye
They'll be time enough tomorrow to look me in the eye
While we play hard, while we keep it real
Search for water in this desert we don't have to steal
Those days are long gone over
And just a word to the wise
Cuz if I never reach the end I sure have enjoyed the ride
We travel in fast company to keep up with this pace
There's one thing that I guarantee is that we'll win this race

We'll go down with the ship
The captain's of our destiny
We'll get on our way
With the wind against our backs
We'll go down with the ship
Before we hand it over
Said over and over and over and over
We'll go down with the ship
The captain's of our destiny
We'll get on our way
With the wind against our backs
We'll go down with the ship
Before we hand it over
I said over and over
Again
Again
Down with the ship
