"Wreck" as written by Kerry Minnear, Derek Shulman, Philip Shulman and Raymond Shulman....
The ship's rising up from the sea to the sky heyeheh Hold on
Just one sorry scream and a desperate cry heyeheh Hold on
Their lives pass before them before they die heyeheh

The sea yawns around like a boiling hell heyeheh hold on
And souls disappear with the toll of that bell heyeheh hold on
The arms of the sea they are dragging them down heyeheh hold on
And sorrows and sins they are lost as they drown heyeheh

How strange when you think that the sea was their way,
And a meaningless death is the price they pay
For their living was made from the deep
To their people in comfort and keep
Keep all their people and places there
Never to be seen again, never to be loved and their last embrace
And the kiss has a salt bitter taste

Now all that remains is the deep cruel sea heyeheh hold on
And wreckage of things that used to be heyeheh hold on
No stone marks the place of that watery grave heyeheh hold on
Together they die both the weak and the brave heyeheh hold on

The arms of the sea

    General CommentGiant is very good at conveying mood & atmosphere through song. I can remember reading someone's review of this track; they didn't like it, citing the fact it sounded "like a theme for pirates".... Exactly, that's the idea!

    General CommentDefinitely agree with your comment regarding their mood and atmosphere in music. Probably what attracts me to them ... being able to convey mood without lyrics (and also with them).

    Has the tune almost of an old sea shanty, but not as corny as others attempts to bring them into rock.
