lyrics

A wrecking is the prize you've won
Sweet failure is your gold
But the snow falls hard in your cold heart
Poor captain of the soul.

It's a weaker man who'll throw his hand
Defeat is often bold
Oh captain,
My poor captain of the soul.

So a reckoning has come to pass
And passed on you have all
Now the blows rain hard on your dead art
Poor captain of the soul.

The anchor landed in your plans
The map fell from hand to fold
Oh captain,
My poor captain.
It's a braver man who'll show his hands
Before a fist takes hold
Oh captain
My poor captain of the soul.

It's a weaker man who'll throw his hand
Defeat is often bold
Oh captain,
My poor captain.
It's a braver man who'll show his hands
Before a fist takes hold
Oh captain
My poor captain of the soul.
