lyrics

The salt spray hits my face - reminds me of my fate and so
like white tipped waves adjusting shapes we are only born to fade away.

You'll never understand the ocean is freedom
You'll never understand the sea and its tyranny

The devil ascends from a great depth
while under the mist its muted chorus screams:
"The kraken is hungry now she needs to feed and how
the threat of silence sends men to shiver!"
You'll never understand...

Now you see me with the brightest eyes in the sea.
We'll sail on 'til night is out of sight.

Lightning strikes my eyes:
renders me all but blind.
Thunder shakes my bones:
reminds me of the solemn tale that I am all alone.

Lightning strikes my eyes:
renders me all but blind.
Thunder shakes my bones:
it's time to harvest the seeds that were sown.

Empowerment ends where the journey begins
and I see blood amongst the churning greys.
The mothers and maidens say: "O, he's the beast within
the crows that gather and eat the bloated dead!"
They'll never understand...

Now you see me with the brightest eyes in the sea
We'll sail on 'til night is out of sight.

I've got to kick you out: Walk that plank! Walk that plank!

O, with such strange aeons even death may die...

Take me away! Take me away!
