Wipe the moondust from your feet
But what if the grains are ashes
To commit to the sea, hide into the waves below
The spent shell that held your father
Lowers down in the sea
The vessel bodies will be sewn in Sailcloth
stop the craft we're buried in the cold wind
Balsa wood will make a boat
Pair of cannonballs to anchor
Need a floor of the deep
Fly the flag at half its height
Sink my casket under breakers
All hands buried deceased
