Take one last breath
Your about to jump to your death
Your about to jump to your death

Sail away from the shoreline
Sail away from the shore
I'm in front of Heavens door.

Sail away from the shoreline
Sail away from the shore
I'm in front of Heavens door.

Captain Captain
Before the sail rips
Captain Captain
I can see enemy ships
Captain Captain
Before the sail rips
Gasp for air
ABANDON ALL SHIPS!!!

The currents strong,
the waves will rise
The binding chains made me realize
Sin is the anchor, holding you down.
I'm on a cruise to Paradise.
I'm done with sin I've paid my price.
God is your captain,
change your direction

Abandon all ships...

We'll part the sea.
Choose your side.
Don't come with me.
You decide.
We'll Part the sea.
Don't come with me.

Sail away from the shoreline
Sail away from the shore
I'm in front of Heavens door.

Look what we've built, walking the plank of guilt.
Look what we've built, walking the plank of guilt.
Look what we've built, walking Blindfolded.
Look what we've built, walking the plank of guilt.
Look what we've built...

The currents strong,
the waves will rise
The binding chains made me realize
Sin is the anchor, holding you down.
I'm on a cruise to Paradise.
I'm done with sin I've paid my price.
God is your captain,
change your direction

Abandon all ships...

    My InterpretationIt is quite simple to me as to what i interprite the lyrics to be. It basicaly says to have faith in God and to leave the past alone quote "I'm done with sin" adn prey for redemption "I've paid my price". The lyrics also mention "Sin is the anchor, holding you down" which posibly can be interpreted as as long as you keep messing up ur not going to get any where in this life (or the next one). also "I'm on my way to paradise" is a possible refernce to going to Heaven or that they are doing better currently in thier life then in the past. but it realy puts an emphasis on trusting God "Gop is your captian, change your direction" which is lyrical advice saying leave everything negative behind, start over and live for and by God.

    If you think properly,,, its explaining why happened with noah, the enemy is the evil, he is saying abandon the ship. and if you are not on the ship you will drown. it basically noah. :,)
