'SOS!'

 

“To anyone on dry land, and all the ships at sea,

we've struck an iceberg, otherwise known as reality.

 

We're hemorrhaging common sense, taking on water,

and we're just lost human lambs to the slaughter.

 

Half the crew and passengers seem to be asleep,

and don't see the problem with sinking into the deep.

 

This is the purser, because the captain doesn't care,

in fact, steered us right into this democratic nightmare.

 

'Woman and children first, to your life boat stations,'

didn't mean shit to them, the whole swampy administration,

 

“cause they saved themselves, and took all the boats,

deck chairs, beer kegs, hell, anything that floats.

 

To repeat, this is The USS America, and we've run aground,

and our arrogant captain and knee-pad crew left us here to drown!”
