The captain knows,
He's hauling too much gold.
We told him so,
Now down to the depths we go.

There is our ship on the ocean
Tossing you and I to and fro
We're lost in this dark, bitter water,
Just trying to keep our heads up.

The captain knows,
He's hauling too much gold.
We told him so,
Now down to the depths we go.

Now we're sitting here,
Waiting on the port side of hell,
While we're staring down the barrel of a dark steelwell.
Can we sink ourselves,
Just to sleep for a spell?

As we go down,
There's something I need to say.
My life may have been wasted,
But don't waste away with me

The captain knows,
He's hauling too much gold.
We told him so,
Now down to the depths we go.
The story's old,
And these old bones grow cold
Go tell your soul,
There're some things you don't know.

Now we're sitting here,
Waiting on the port side of hell,
While we're staring down the barrel of a dark steelwell.
Can we sink ourselves,
Just to sleep for a spell?

(While we're staring down the barrel of a dark steelwell.
Just to sleep for a spell.)
