I lie awake and I am haunted by the water
I toss and turn, I’m at the mercy of the sea
The wild wind that fills the sails of an armada
Could tear this ship apart and be the death of me

So strapped into the bed I struggle like a hurricane
The hurricane that is the nightmare of the sea
I fear under the ship a monster waits to swallow me
Holding the treasure to my heart I grit my teeth

Every single day, I hide away, I try to pray
Nothing to say, the final day, come quickly
Letters I can’t send, oh how I crave my journey’s end
And I don’t even have a friend, please take me home

Adventurer who tried to touch forbidden treasure
A hungry man wasn’t invited to the feast
A drunken man who tries to reach the final bottle
A prisoner begins to make the final plea
But there’s no currency can bribe this executioner
The stolen gold is sinking deep beneath the sea
The voices ringing in the wind I hear accusing me
The tentacles that drag their victims underneath…

Every single day, I hide away, I try to pray
Nothing to say, the final day, come quickly
Letters I can’t send, oh how I crave this journey’s end
And I don’t even have a friend, please take me home
