Erasure – Ship Of Fools

Official music video 'Ship Of Fools' per­formed by Erasure taken from the album 'The Innocents' (1988).

Lyrics:

I can't believe what is hap­pen­ing to me
My head is spinning
The flowers and the trees are encap­su­lat­ing me
And I go spinning

He was the baby of the class you know
He really didn't know that one and one was two
Two and two were four
He was the baby of the class you know
He really didn't know that, really didn't know that
Oh what a poor soul

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so pre­cious and so cruel?

I close my eyes and I try to imagine
What you're dreaming
Why can't you see what you're doing to me?
My world is spinning

You were the baby of the class you know
You really didn't know that one and one was two
Two and two were four
You were the baby of the class
You were so young and so uncertain
Suffer little children
Oh what a poor soul

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so pre­cious and so cruel?

He was the baby of the class you know
He really didn't know that one and one was two
Two and two were four
He was the baby of the class you know
He was so young and so uncertain
Suffer little children
Oh what a poor soul

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so pre­cious and so cruel?

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so fra­gile and so cruel?

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so pre­cious and so cruel?
