Story behind the song
Didn't want the everyone to think that all believers in Christ are believers in Trump.
Lyrics
O Captain, My Captain! Men were fighting on a burning ship, Fighting while the ship went down. The captain was drunk and left the wheel, They searched, but he couldn't be found. Some were fighting to bail the ship, Some to fight the flame, While others fought their fellows, For the fault of not fighting the same. O Captain, My Captain, The Ship of State, Slips down beneath the waves! Surrendered to fate. But why are you Playing shuffleboard, While death swings open its gates? First mate, he stepped forward, Said, "Calm yourself, my men" But some fool up and slit his throat, Guess he won't speak again! It was chaos, death and curses, Screams and horrid shouts, While down in its bowels the engine died, And all the ship's lights went out. O Captain, My Captain, The Ship of State, Slips down beneath the waves! Surrendered to fate. But why are you Playing shuffleboard, While death swings open its gates? The passengers opened devices, Sent messages to the shore, Word came back, to sail on, No safe harbour anymore. No one saw the ship go down, And few were truly saved. The ship of fools who fought above, Their unmarked water graves! O Captain, My Captain! The Ship of Fate, Sank down beneath your ego, That was so great! And you were booking tee times, While death swung open its gates.
