They say this world is coming to an end
They say that Jesus is your only friend
They say that from your sin you must be saved
They say there ain't no ace in all the cards you played

You're at the end and in the seaman's log
There ain't no land in sight for this old salty dog

There ain't no pretty maid that waits for me
There is no safe retreat as far as I can see
There are no friends amongst the ones I lived
There's only strangers with notorious urges to kill

If storms won't get me, I have enemies that will
We've paid a fortune for a first class seat in hell

I don't believe there is an end of what is ME
There's no beginning to my being as I see it
There's just this solitude and this now
But I'm still alive and kicking, holy cow!!

They say this island is no place for me to hide
That grass is greener on some other distant side
They say the sky is crying for a lost and lonely soul
A simple thief crawls back into his dirty hole

You're at the end and in the seaman's log
There ain't no land in sight for this old salty dog

A millions eyes out in the starless night
They've got some common ground, some call it hate
All sleep I get is with one eye open wide
The kings and priests they want my head upon a plate

If storms won't get me, I have enemies that will
We've paid a fortune for a first class seat in hell

I don't believe there is an end of what is ME
There's no beginning to my being as I see it
There's just my salty story and this now
And I'm still alive and kicking, holy cow!!
