~||Tell the Captain||~

Tell the Captain I’m not boarding…
This ship is missing me today.
Besides, my name looks better when its mine alone.
I don’t like to share.

Tell the Captain he’ll see me in a couple years…
Forget my face until then.
I’ve sailed the seas before
and been the cause of historic arson.

Tell the Captain I wish him a safe journey…
The ocean will be kind since I won’t be there.
Although his lone passenger will miss me
I still must flee to elsewhere.

Tell the Captain when he returns I’ll be ready…
Survived the straight and narrow path.
And if he’s skeptical, I have proof.
Life tattooed scars on my back.
