ROGER WATERS lyrics - The Ship Of State Is All At Sea

ROGER WATERS
"The Ship Of State Is All At Sea"

[Ringmaster:]
The ship of state is all at sea
The King is confused
'Tis hard enough to place one foot before the last
To tread a path preordained by a law divine
But to pad all aimless on a shifting sea
Each man an island free to choose his fate
God's death; what dizzy, giddy, fall from grace...
Commerce, that barometer of faith
Tolls warning of the coming storm
No coffee in the marketplace
No peace on earth for rich or poor

Ca Ira (2005)
