lyrics

Sea, burning sun, tortured flesh
Peels off me
I sit upon painted waves
The winds sigh

Sour dream, bitter dream
Toy ships on gilded waves
Nature will prescribe her pill
Of horror to useless slaves
Pull me to the grave

Sleep, Is there sleep for my eyes?
Where waters leap
Dawn, drains the life from my bones
‘Til I’m gone

Rain falls, darkness crawls
Bones brake as heavens heave
Gulls laugh, thunder cracks
Boats screech on lonely seas
Between Neptune’s teeth

Man cannot live with himself
In silent hands
God made this starved, wild sea
That holds me

Sour dream, bitter dream
Toy ships on gilded waves
Nature will prescribe her pill
Of horror to useless slaves
Pull me to the grave

I’m a shade among shades
A dead man's eyes
This is the place where I’ll die,
Where I’ll die

Rain falls, darkness crawls
Bones break as heavens heave
Gulls laugh, thunder cracks
Boats sink on lonely seas
Between Neptune’s teeth
