lyrics

VERSE 1: [MC LARS]

I'm alive man, (yeah!) but don't know where the heck I am (what?)
washed up on shore, now I can barely move my hands
creatures crawling on my chest - the crowds began to swarm
and when I tried to sit up well and they shot me in the arm!
Ow! With a thousand tiny arrows, guess I’d been captured,
by these bite sized Lilliputians - and they’re hella enraptured
‘cause their tiny jaws dropped, like they’d just seen a dragon
when I took a giant dump, they brought a hundred the wagons!
They had customs, and things that they were used to
like way they broke their eggs, unlike the heathens of Blefuscu
Small side first, they had they me steal their ships
they told me to take 'em out, and that’s when I quit
I said, "Genocide is bad!", then the castle caught on fire
I peed and put it out, which quite inflamed their ire
labeled as a traitor, they tried to pluck my eyes
a journey almost as bad as my last United flight (oh!)

CHORUS: [JILL SOBULE]

Shipwrecked, shipwrecked
How did I wind up in this mess, this mess?
High above the king and all his subjects
Like a monster in a foreign land, now
don't understand how, I'm

Shipwrecked, shipwrecked
Washed ashore, they tied my arms and my legs
Everything is cool, but everything changes
Yeah, yeah, had some big plans to travel
But my plans unraveled when I'm shipwrecked!

VERSE 2: [MEGA RAN]

My crew and me used to be tight like a corset
Till everything became distorted
A mutiny they took my resources
I awaken in a land that was gorgeous...
Full of anthropomorphic horses?
Unsullied, like the Grey Worm, what they learn
Is devoid of dissonance, every citizen totally innocent
Im digging this, I even had to explain
The set of laws the govern the land from whence I came
Such as, in my home we get to choose who will lead us
The person with the least votes is defeated
Unless of course he's got enough influence to beat it
So I guess the rules can be adjusted as needed
"But what's a rule?" ahh, an instruction,
because without them there'd be chaos
"We don't have those!", maybe our values are way off?
No one's lying, police sirens and no crime scenes
Can't wait to get back and tell the homies what I've seen

CHORUS: [JILL SOBULE]

Shipwrecked, shipwrecked
How did I wind up in this mess, this mess?
From Equestria I made my exit
Like a monster in a foreign land, now
don't understand how, I'm

Shipwrecked, shipwrecked
Washed ashore, they tied my arms and my legs
Everything is cool, but everything changes
Yeah, yeah, had some big plans to travel
But my plans unraveled when I'm shipwrecked!

VERSE 3: [STORYVILLE]

Gulliver, one hell of a traveler
I would love to take a moment, open his travelogue
Been near and far, Kokomo to Zanzibar
A prodigy out to sea on odyssey, obviously!
Seems strange sightings, it's exciting as lighting!
(Ha - it is lighting!) How'd he find the time to write this thing?
Encountering everyone from giants, to little mini people
Science-minded business people, mortals grown-up old and feeble
Savage creatures with human features, brutish and brutal
The he found a Yahoo without even using Google
And even after what his mutinous crew would do to him
He discovered an island of horses named Houyhnhnm
It comes to understand that these chivalrous kings
And glistening rings are all truly frivolous things
Their humanity's been caught in trivialities and fallacies
and class and caste to built up these walls, castles and palaces

CHORUS: [JILL SOBULE]

Shipwrecked, shipwrecked
How did I wind up in this mess, this mess?
The smallest guy in town, it's got me upset
Like a monster in a foreign land, now
don't understand how, I'm

Shipwrecked, shipwrecked
Washed ashore, they tied my arms and my legs
Everything is cool, but everything changes
Yeah, yeah, had some big plans to travel
But my plans unraveled when I'm shipwrecked!
