We all know
What it is to be afraid in life
What it is to be alive
What it is to be afraid in life
What it is to be alive

I keep on working
Like a Japanese captain

Touch me baby
Rinse me please
Fuck me darling -
Under the table is good, but under your fingers is better
You know I'm in love
Like a Japanese captain

Touch me baby
Ring me please
Reach me darling -
Under the radar is good, but under your fingers is better
You know I'm in love
Like a Japanese Captain

Today is the same as tomorrow
But this time it's happened before
I will kiss you somewhere that it's dark

I adore you
I adore you
I adore you

Like a Japanese captain
