lyrics

Oh mother dear
Where have you gone
When we needed you the most
Our ship is sinking
All the lifeboats washed away
So long ago I can’t remember
Should we keep on sailing,
Keep on sailing?

No!
Trim the sails
Hold tight
Drop the anchor
Abandon ship
To the icy depths
We’ll march
Down to Neptune’s door
Entombed
In the crushing deep we’ll stay
Better there than here
I’ll not see my progeny
Subjected to another day of

This candid camera view
We fall down
It’s not funny anymore

Elusive words
That can’t find their place
Will fall like whispers upon deaf ears
But sink or swim
They’ll know where we stand
Be it on the shore or buried in the sand below

Beseech these seas
Please relieve me
Time on my side
These stars my bride

In time
The sun will call out to her dormant sister
And pull above, leaving us dry and wasted
After all, were we not promised to Leviathan as
But simple gifts to exploit as she see fit?

Take this life
This bottled shipwreck cries
Subservient and dull
Longing to return
Despite
Our impending graves in sight
We long for wave and brine
Let the storm come with no fear
Ah, the end is calm
As now we’re no longer part of

This candid camera view
They fall down
It’s not funny anymore

Elusive words
That can’t find their place
Will fall like whispers upon deaf ears
But sink or swim
They’ll know where we stand
Be it on the shore or buried in the sand below
