Supply And Demand Lyrics

He singin' what is that sound? What is that noise?
I cannot figure it out for the life of me boys
Is it the coast guard or is it the wind?
Is it the mother ship comin' again?

Convicted on charges of supply and demand
He was unloadin' the American Dream
Caught in the middle of a bigger plan
It was a South American scheme

He is no smuggler he is a fisherman
All of his debts they're owed to the sea
Some call it justice but it just ain't right
This ain't live and let live and let be

He singin' what is that sound? What is that noise?
I cannot figure it out for the life of me boys
Is it the coast guard or is it the wind?
Or is it the mother ship comin' again?

Layin' in his cell and thinkin' 'bout Ulysses
How he picked up his oar and walked away from the sea
Until someone said you ain't from round here, are you?
And that's how far away he feels

He thinks of his wife and he thinks of his children
And thinks about 'em takin' his boat
He thinks about the killer in the bunk below
And he's tryin' to keep his hopes afloat

He singin' what is that sound? What is that noise?
I cannot figure it out for the life of me boys
Is it the coast guard or is it the wind?
Is it the mother ship comin' again?

He singin' what is that sound? What is that noise?
I cannot figure it out for the life of me boys
Is it the coast guard or is it the wind?
Is it the mother ship comin' again?
