Ship of Fools - Robert Plant

On waves of love my heart is breaking
stranger still my self-control. I can't rely on anymore
new tides surprise. My word it's changing
within this frame, an ocean swells
behind this smile. I know it well

Beneath a lover's moon - I'm waiting
I am the pilot of the storm
adrift in pleasure - I may drown
I built this ship it is my making
and further more my self control
I can't rely anymore

You claim that no man is an island
while I land up in jeopardy
more distant from you by degrees
I walk this shore in isolation
and at my feet eternity
lays ever sweeter plans for me
I know why
Helpless on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around back to my loving ground
Ship of fools
