Take me by the hand and don't tell me where we're going
I swear I'll keep my eyes wide shut
I hear the sound of the waves and the wind roars
I know this place all too well
This is where I have buried my heart
Where "X" marks the spot
And I've spent a 100 years at sea just trying to forget
My love where have you been?
Never again will the wind blow in my favor
And never again will I set foot on land
I've been doomed to the ocean
Forced to spend a life at sea
I've kept my promisses and carried the dead home
And let this ordeal get the best of me
No longer a man
No longer alive
I lost it all when I bought into your lies
Jealousy sets in and takes root
You will see what I'm capable of when this goes through
The deep abyss has now become my home
I must live with this curse
I still see your face and whisper your name
Hoping that you will come back to me
And I have held on to sentiments of better days
I've kept this key in my chest, where my heart used to rest
And buried this pain deep below the sands
So I can never feel again
So I can never hurt again
I'm a wreck
A slave to my word
We'll wreak havoc
Oh here comes the kraken
The only way to get inside of your head is to be dead
And bury myself in my love
But you weren't there
I will find strength in the waves
And finally call the ocean my home
I will call it home
I will call this home
The ocean's my home
