Lyrics:

I’m not going anywhere
You can take window seat
And you can keep all my drinks
Cus I forfeit
 
I’m not saying anything
I’d rather walk to my grave
And all the bells you can ring
But I forfeit
 
So it goes
I’m not doing anything
I gave up on winner’s faith
I gave up on feeling brave
And I forfeit
 
So it goes
 
I see forty weeks trying to please for ivory
I could see forty weeks trying to please
But I’m always coming up short
And my temper’s too short
 
So it goes
Little girl blue, why aren’t ya fighting here with me?
Well I got fed up with the battle envy
And I got fed up with my commanders and chiefs
All aboard
And I got fed up doing dirty work for cheap
I got fed up trying to stall our winning streaks
I got fed up wasting others‘ money
So I forfeit
 
Everyone they’re coming up, everyone they want a piece, everyone they’re coming up, they wanna see something
Everyone they’re coming up, everyone they want a piece, everyone they’re coming up, they wanna see something
 
All aboard
Everybody thinks they can teach
Everybody can get pretty mean
Everybody thinks they can see
The best choice for me
Everybody’s screaming „wait wait wait!“
Nevermind that you’re holding a grenade
Steer the ship or we’re all gonna sink
They’re gonna make me faint
 
They’re gonna make me faint
They’re gonna paint me weak
I wish they’d let me be
I guess I’ll let them sink
 
(You’re a loss for me
You’re a cost for me
You’re a loss for me
You’re a cost for me
A worthy casualty
I’ll leave you lost at sea
A worthy casualty)
 
So all aboard
Little girl blue, why aren’t ya fighting here with me?
Well I got fed up with the battle envy
And I got fed up with my commanders and chiefs
All aboard
Everybody thinks they can teach
Everybody can get pretty mean
Everybody thinks they can see
The best choice for me
„wait wait wait“
Never mind that you’re holding a grenade
Steer the ship or we’re all gonna sink
You’re gonna make me faint
 
I tried to forfeit
I tried to drop this
I tried to forget
I tried to stop this
