"The Captain"

Coming home after a long long walk 
Coming home after a dozen of walks 
Coming home after a long long war 
Coming home after a dozen of wars 

We are out of wind 
We have pock-marked chin 
We have lots of water 
We turn the other cheek and we win 

One thousand stories and there's always more 
We've been offered one more lap to go 
In my hand I hold a key 
It's dear to me cause I know where it leads 

We are out of wind 
We have pock-marked chin 
We have all this water 
We turn the other cheek with a grin
