Lyrics

My name’s Sebastian
I killed the captain
Just a guy that likes to keep the ghetto blastin’
In 1690 I blew up Weimar
Dedicating everything I did to Beauty
But Truth and Beauty
Are not the same thing
The Grecian Urn filled up with camel dung
I got a sharp tongue
Better warn the Pope

All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
With the wind ever blowing my sail
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
With the wind ever blowing my sail
Blowing my sail
Blowing my sail

I’m like a Buddhist
Tryna do this
And you can hook me up with God because you’re Jewish
The Pharisees are
Tryna thwart me
I need a Mary Magdalene to escort me
Such a bummer
The Last Supper
Is right around the corner from this place
Get your pants on
Botox your face

All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
With the wind ever blowing my sail
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
With the wind ever blowing my sail
Blowing my sail

I'll never know
If I'm worth a damn
Or just a ham
But when I trust a feeling
Music comes to me
And I feel free
And that's all I needed to know

All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
With the wind ever blowing my sail
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
With the wind ever blowing my sail
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
With the wind ever blowing my sail
Blowing my sail
Blowing my sail
