lyrics

Stand to
The windseye
She’ll show her heels
To the longnines

I’m the whisper in your ear
All the dross that you hold dear
I’m the tempest and the flood
I’m the mark of flesh and blood
Sights are set and I don’t miss
I’m the beast I’m Judas kiss
I’m the bane that blights your soul
Leviathan your torpedo

You won’t forsake me
I’m your sine qua non
You won’t mistake me
I’m what you’re made of
I can’t be shaken
I’m the road to demise
You will not break me
Come along for the ride

I know just what you think
I know you’re on the brink
Just a little drink
To see you through
I know you wanna touch it
I know how very much it
Makes you feel alive
She’ll never know
You know that you deserve this
All your years of service
Just a numbers game
They’ll never know

You know you can’t defeat it
So acquiesce and free it
You might as well release it
Torpedo
Jack Ketch on the longboats
Tyburn saints for Tyburn trees
Sirens sing their last note
Seven sins and seven seas

I am crouched and dressed to kill
Iniquity corporal will
I’m the fuel but you’re the flame
No one but yourself to blame
I’m the splinters in your veins
You’re the crutch your hell your acid rain
Relentless guilt and endless shame
Yes I go by many names

Come a little nearer
Wanna see me clearer
Step up to the mirror
There I am
Never gonna tame me
Discard or defame me
Just a little game called
Me and you
Really quite amusing
You censure but diffuse me
Never gonna lose me
We are one

You know you can’t defeat me
So acquiesce and free me
You might as well release me
Torpedo

Captain’s daughters waiting
Deadly sins and deadly seas
To pay for your hell-raking
I am you and you are me

I am
Save our souls
