"Tempest & The Tide" as written by Rosalie Cunningham and Ed Turner....
My ribbons are a'tattered and torn
My hair is in a tangle
My eyes they stare a thousand miles
My chest's a ball of bramble

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Here in the hell between
Ooh, ooh, ooh
The devil and the deep blue sea

I swallow hard to clear the thorns
Metallic taste is rising
And from my mouth, a crimson tear
Adoring and despising

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Here in the hell between
Ooh, ooh, ooh
The devil and the deep blue sea

The devil with his come on eyes
The deep blue sea's unsung surprise
It's fight or flight, sink or swim
And so I let the games begin

The jury nod, the death knell rings
I gaze into the cold abyss
My sentence called, the words unclear
And in a foreign language

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Here in the hell between
Ooh, ooh, ooh
The devil and the deep blue sea

Circles I can't leave
Drown me as I weep
Sleep forever sleep
Take me to the deep
