The captain goes down with the ship" is a maritime tradition that a sea captain holds ultimate responsibility for both his ship and everyone embarked on it, and that in an emergency, he will either save them or die trying. Although often connected to the sinking of RMS Titanic in 1912 and its captain, Edward J. Smith, the tradition precedes Titanic by at least 11 years.
What Went Down Lyrics. I buried my heart in a hole in the ground With the lights and the roses and the cowards downtown They threw me a party, there was no one around They tried to call my girl but she could not be found. I buried my guilt in a pit in the sand With the rust and the vultures and the trash downtown So don't step to me, kid, you'll never be found Cause while you were sleeping, I took over your town. What Went Down is the title track and lead single of Foals‘ fourth album, featuring a louder, brasher sound more akin to Foals’ live shows than their first three studio records. The track was released alongside a music video, directed by Niall O'Brien. Yannis Philippakis stated: The recorded version is the first one we ever played. I re-recorded the vocals but the rest of it is raw. It’s one of those moments you can have if you’re lucky in the studio where things seem to materialise fully-formed.
The ship had been at sea for over a month when found, and reportedly still had over six months’ worth of food and supplies on board. Cargo and personal belongings of the crew were found untouched – including valuables – although a lifeboat was missing. Under the command of Captain Benjamin Briggs (pictured, left), his wife and daughter and a crew of seven, the Mary Celeste sailed from Staten Island to Genoa, Italy in 1872. The experience of this crew was not in question; in addition to a life at sea by the captain who had commanded five other ships and owned many more, the crew had five experienced European sailors among them. The chief mate of the Dei Gratia boarded the Mary Celeste and reported that he did not find anyone on board, but discovered that the ship was a thoroughly wet mess.
