Track Name: Turn This Ship Around
Turn This Ship Around

When we are talking just you and I
We almost always agree
Things make sense but we ride the fence
Till the truth is hard to see

But the world gives out its warnings
I can feel a new day dawning
Still no captain to be found
We all know where we need to go
Let’s turn this ship around

We can’t keep our eyes closed
And pretend to be blind
The waters rise in sea of lies
While we make up our minds

There’s a light on off in the distance
A distress call for assistance
The tower warns of shallow ground
We all know where we need to go
Let’s turn this ship around

I’m waiting for the world to wake up (wake up)
I’m waiting for the world to wake up (wake up)
I’m waiting for the world to wake up (wake up)
And hear the warning siren sound

We all know where we need to go
I say, we all know where we need to go
I say, we all know where we need to go
I say, we all know where we need to go
Let’s turn this ship around
