The ship is sinking but it's alright
to check it over, check it over,
Check it over now
It's been a long night
And now it's over
Or is it over?
Check it over now

Back in cheap seats
You feel a shockwave
Spilling your cheap drinks
On your knees

And up in first class
Through all the white teeth
A gentle whisper,
then a scream -


It's just a test tone
In all the best homes
They're dropping white phones
On their plates

But when the clock stops
They want to talk shop
And now the doors locked
Anyway, the ship is sinking but it's alright...
