Slave-chained, half-naked
Along for the ride
Catching flies with my eyes shut
My mouth's open wide

But I curse as the bugs bite
I spit with the tide
Like to fly to the next world
It's just out of sight

I'm sick of the same scene
I'm tired of this road
Howling oaths at the cruel sea
That creeps 'round my toes

And I'm thinking of you
My regret overflows
But sleep softly my dear one
Cause you'll never know

I swear by the rings
Round the admiral's eyes
This albatross stings
Like a sword in my side

And this boat's gonna sink
And we're all gonna die
Sleep softly my dear one
I'll keep it inside.
