If I stand around and watch them drown in a pool of gray
When we dive in I can surely say there's feud with force
Am I in your way? Please knock me down. Can I help you in?
When I'm not around let us all be found in certain ways

Dear Mr. Queequeg you have been informed your life's been saved
You are not a black-hearted vicious mess so it has been claimed
If this is the beast pulling us towards the east with mighty waves
Let us look inside and pull out all your pride you know it's up to us

Holding pasts in ash black earth
Bound by roots
Roots into sand
Grow towards the giver

There's an open wound placed upon my heart in anger's rage
If we open up a spirit, a spirit that can bleed
Ahab the leading lad we can trust his obsession carries them
Meet us at the temple healing all the crippled

Don't forget the maimed
Lower soul sent with gifts offering
Teeth of hope travel with
Child laid next to mother

    General CommentThe whole Leviathan album besides the song "Joseph Merrick" revolves around Moby Dick. They decided to do a concept album about one of the heaviest books ever created. Inner turmoil, a struggle with a seemingly unbeatable giant. That literary work is heavy metal as we all know it. Heavy material for a heavy band. They pull it off wonderfully.

    General Comment"Is it just me or is this song a perfect example of what Nirvana would be like if they were harder?"

    hmmm... i do see what you mean in a wierd way.. but i'd say alice in chains more. He sounds a bit like ozzy when he sings on this track.

    It's my favourite song of theirs and i read Moby Dick because of this record.

    General CommentOh yeah, it almost sounds as if they are big fans of Moby Dick. I THINK that's what this song is referring to.

    General CommentSo if this is their 'Water' album, does that make Remission the 'Earth' album, and Blood Mountain is 'Air'? Or the other way around. I know they have an elements theme to the last 3 records, but beyond Leviathan I can't figure out which is which.
