Yep I found the title to be the most interesting part of that quoted lyrics. I always wondered if anyone else looked it up too.
Shhh they aren't listening.

Read or listen to the lyrics of the song to tie to TTOTC. Then tie the title of the song to who Elmyr de Hory was.

Just wait a little longer, @McFly.

I'm guessing that a person waiting for a ship that never comes in is the victim of a hoax, similar to a customer of de Hory.

It's one of the most troubling things about TTOTC in my opinion. De Hory's story is pretty well known, but digging deeper leads to Clifford Irving, who wrote a biography of de Hory, and was convicted of writing a fake biography of Howard Hughes. Later, Irving worked with Olson Welles on his documentary F Is For Fake. There's so much fake and misleading stuff in TTOTC that it could be considered a fake memoir, and that's why I was calling it a verisimilitude, or biographical fiction.
