We stole away from the crown of flame
For a cold land without a name
We had our maps and our compass set
For the long journey ahead

We traced shapes cross the starry skies
And made our way through each tender night
We heard the weary whales tune
And sang along 'neath a silver moon

Antarctica! You stole our hearts!
Antarctica! You stole our hearts!

We saw the ice storms and glacier peaks
We watched the skies lose light for weeks
We felt the madness shake our souls
We grew our beards down to our toes

Do you remember the giant squid?
In our cabin deck we hid
Our bending hull in tenacious grip
All trapped inside our tiny ship

Antarctica! You stole our hearts!
Antarctica! You stole our hearts!

And when our ship's mast was seaward bound
Toward icy depth, towards Poseidon's crown

Oh you banshee wind you came singing
In a whirlwind I thought I saw our end

On a frosty wine-dark sea
We fought brave and gallantly
But now our parts all sink into
The bottom of the ocean blue

Backs bourne against the tide
Our fate writ on the heaven's high

In a frozen grave, above the ocean's waves
In a tattered part, see the broken heart.

Antarctica! You stole our hearts!
Antarctica! You stole our hearts!
