One hundred years in servitude,
Under the mast,
My heart cut from my chest,
As payment for this task,
Their time is coming,
They will meet their final rest,
A small reprieve from the hell,
That is known as death.

So, Hoist the colors,
Outstretch those sails,
We all take to the seas,
As one thousand ghosts wail. (x2)

You have a debt,
That must be paid,
You have a soul,
That can't be saved.

For our forbidden love,
I paid the ultimate price,
Now I lie in wait,
Beneath the crushing tide,
A ferry for lost souls,
A cursed final guide.

The reprecussions of this duty,
Are a worse fate than death itself,
And my appearance has been changing,
I don't resemble my former self,
My hatred for the living drives me,
Jealously I allow them to chose,
Their lives can end here or become,
Part of the ship and part of the crew.

These monstrous creatures,
Were once men like you & I,
The twisting of my purpose,
Corrupts their bodies and their minds,
We all resemble demons,
Brought up from the deepest trench,
Chimeric fusion of sea monsters,
And a worthless wretch,
My sadness grows inside,
Forlorn and betrayed from above,
A goddess of the ocean,
This curse is payment for our love.

For our forbidden love,
I paid the ultimate price,
Now I lie in wait,
Beneath the crushing tide,
A ferry for lost souls,
A cursed final guide.

Do you fear death? (x2)

For our forbidden love,
I paid the ultimate price,
Now I lie in wait,
Beneath the crushing tide,
A ferry for lost souls,
A cursed final guide.
