Ship of Fools

I really need to right my ship. I have let some things get completely out of control and I am moments away from losing my grip on what I have convinced myself was 'okay'. I am 41. I have lived the better half of my life. If I don't get my act together soon, there clearly will not be another 41 years left. I'll be lucky if I make it 50. These should be the best years. There isn't the scratching and clawing that there was in my 20's or early 30's. We are doing incredibly well. Like retire at 50 well. I just need to get my act together or everything is going to fall apart and fast. Robert Plant's lyrics... On waves of love my heart is breaking And stranger still my self-control I can't rely on anymore. New tide, surprise my world is changing. Within this frame an ocean swells Behind the smile I know it well. Beneath a lover's moon I'm waiting I am the pilot of the storm Adrift in pleasure I may drown. I built this ship; it is my making And further more my self-control I can't rely on anymore. I know why I know why Crazy on a ship of fools Crazy on a ship of fools Turn this boat around, Back to my loving ground Oh no, oh no Who claims that no man is an island? While I land up in jeopardy More distant from you by degrees I walk this shore in isolation And at my feet eternity Draws ever-sweeter plans for me I know why I know why Crazy on a ship of fools Crazy on a ship of fools Turn this boat around, Back to my loving ground Oh no, oh no ship of fools Turn this boat around, Back to my loving ground Oh no. Crazy on a ship of fools Oh, crazy on a ship of fools Turn this boat around, Back to my loving ground Oh no, oh no ship of fools
