Who is the captain of this ship?
This storm is choking me,
I grasp for air and cry for help,
I am drowning in misery

The depths await with open arms,
Begging to claim my soul
My lighthouse closed long ago
She left a gaping hole

As darkness clouds my view ahead,
I have nowhere left to turn
I race in panic around the ship
Trying to find the stern

Oh hear my cry and take my pain
But no one answers me
For me alone can save the ship
The captain I will be

I chart my course and then set sail,
I pray the skies turn blue,
For now I am the Captain
And hope will see me through
