since you left
there's been some dissention in the ranks
bad news from above
they're closing all the banks

more or less
it happens to the best
you were in The War
the never-ending test

you built ships from blood and steel
proved that World War II was real
i built a bagpipe that had gills
your ghost said "feed it to the seals"

in the sea
there's a 40 fathom tree
if you try to peel the bark
you start to look like he

back at home
the waves have turned to foam
i built a statue out of sand
but the hands are made of chrome

you built ships from blood and steel
proved that World War II was real
i built a bagpipe that had gills
your ghost said "feed it to the seals"
