"I Am Ahab" as written by and Brent Hinds Troy Sanders....
There's magic in the water that attracts all men
Across hills and down streams

The turning of the tide
Future bright
Beauty shines
Light cloud rain drive on
Thirteen years to this day red planet aligned
Into sight sixty thousand years of light
Fascination with a mountain put to sea
Built to slay and conquer
All with teeth of beasts

    General CommentThe entire album "Leviathon2 is a concept album about the book "Moby Dick". Obviously this is about the character Captain Ahab and his obsession with the sea and the white whale.

    General Commentits about Ahab preparing for the voyage, looking to the horizons through his gyroscope or whatever, hoisting the sails, and about how proud he is of his ship.

    General CommentObvious what this is about! Captain Ahab, and his upcoming venture.

    Anywho, I think this is an underrated Mastodon song, but it is one of my faves from Leviathan.
