"Master Storm" as written by David Alexander John Mcpherson, Gregory Allen Mcpherson and Ben Konstantinovic....
Encapsulated on this vessel, perished crew all strewn around me
A breaking wave slowly surrounds me, coming to wash my sins away
We've got to ride with the wave, we've got to stand and be brave
Or it's a watery grave (for our hero)
As we ride into the storm our sanity will transform
As two we will be reborn

I was crucified for what I thought I believed
I was sacrificed and made to walk the plank
The rogue waves unify and focus all their power on me
Damage inflicted but freedom won't be restricted

This situation is quite awful
The sharks have smelt this blood
Whilst one chews on the last morsel
I ponder time before the great flood
We used to feel so complete, we used to dance in the street
We used to dance to the beat
But now it's all at the bottom of the ocean forgotten
Alike the lifeboat and transom
(We will go down when she goes down)

I was crucified for what I thought I believed
I was sacrificed and made to walk the plank
The rogue waves unify and focus all their power on me
Damage inflicted but freedom won't be restricted

The water is freezing, the breeze is so raw
And I cannot feel my pulse, I cannot see the coast (no lighthouse to see)
I wish for the morning but I won't survive the night
Her ghost is so warm and bright but she's home at land (sing a song for me)
My darling I pray that this bottle will find you well
It holds all the words in my heart
I curse the day that we had to part, to part

Sipping on sea water
Hallucinations torture me (a myriad of dreams)
The horizon offers nothing
We will go down when she goes down
When she goes down

My lungs they flood, the Devil takes my hand
No guiding light, just memories of home and golden sand
My dreams shatter, as I head for a new land
I close my eyes and pressure of the ocean crushes my heart

The water is freezing, the breeze is so raw
And I cannot feel my pulse, I cannot see the coast (no lighthouse to see)
I wish for the morning but I won't survive the night
Her ghost is so warm and bright but she's home at land (sing a song for me)
My darling I pray that this bottle will find you well
It holds all the words in my heart
I curse the day that we had to part, to part

    General CommentI reckon it's about Noahs Ark or something similar like a sailor out at sea. I reckon there's a deeper metaphor though.

    General Comment'This song is about a man lost at sea, however it's a metaphor for a man drowning in alcoholism'- Dave McPherson
