sleater-kinney - the end of you tab Build for me your tightest ship make the oars run swift and fast. Send me out your strongest crew make their hearts and minds steadfast. Bless me with Athene there's no meaner, she's the best. For when we hit the roughest seas we'll need all we can get. You say "sink or swim", what a cruel cruel phrase I'd rather fly, don't want to get caught in this endless race. The first beast that will appear will entice us with money and fame. If you listen long enough you'll forget there's anything else. Tie me to the mast of this ship and of this band. Tie me to the greater things the people that I love. You can walk the plank, do the dead man's float Never let them see, your heart is pounding full of hope. Let the last storm hit us let it strike at the hardest part. Turn us all to mutiny turn this boat upside down. I am not the captain I am just another fan. Sailing off the edge of truth into the end of you. Eye of the storm, what a cruel myth There's no bigger spotlight than show on the ones brave enough to live.
