Ocean Dirge

Heavy waves are pushing
this boat from side to side
Praying deep below deck that
this ocean don't take our lives
when there's a storm a-brewin'
you all makes conclusions that
it's not all worth the fight
but this dream we're pursuing
of rivers of wine and
treasures they fall from the sky
haunt our lives
we're singing

We sail into the dawn
hearts heavy with burden
spirits we keep high
singing on the ocean
I swear I saw an angel
burning in the setting sun
but before this
candle ignites at both ends
I'd say I think the ocean won

You know you got to fear me
because I'm the one
your mother warned you about
I'm a fearless man of the water
sailing, sailing day in and day out
when there's a storm a-brewin'
you all makes conclusions
that these men will surely die
but this delusion we're pursuing
of rivers of gold and
treasure they fall from the sky
we're singing

Repeat Chorus

We're going down (repeat x3)

Better abandon the ship

We're going down, better abandon the ship (x3)

I said before this day is over
declare the oceans won.
