He once was told,
"Once you hit the seas everything will change."
Well, he's still waiting for that day.
And every single second,
It just gets further away.
Left to man the ship,
Left in charge just in spite.

"Let your body sink," he says,
"Fate is in your hands."
You beg to have him let you go,
Help; it's your demand.
But you were born a murderer,
You killed your mother 'fore you saw the light.
It's your destiny fulfilled,
To stab our backs with rusty knife.

"Please," the boy says,
"It's insanity at best,
I've killed one life too many,
Place the knife upon my chest."
And every single second,
It just gets further away.
Left to man the ship,
Left in charge just in spite.

"Let your body sink," he says,
"Fate is in your hands."
You beg to have him let you go,
Help; it's your demand.
But you were born a murderer,
You killed your mother 'fore you saw the light.
It's your destiny fulfilled;
To stab our backs with rusty knife.

"Forgive me father, I have sinned,
I've loved you like no other,
Once you reach the pearly gates,
Pass my regards onto my mother."
"I'd love to son, but sadly I won't be flying up to Heaven.
It's the fiery pits of Hell below, where I am surely heading."
But it's too late,
The ship has filled.
No lifeboats left,
No life jackets.
I'll not be your killer,
It's too much of me to ask.
You've trained me to become something I never wanted and,
Defy you now I have,
I'll go down with this ship,
Like every other man.
