Last Man on Deck Lyrics

11. Last Man on Deck (13:16)
Part I (Captain John Davy)

So quiet not a sound
Before me only night

Alone out at sea
With no land in sight

I remember the day of our last goodbye

I have cursed and I've prayed
'cause sailors never cry

Why can't my sins just be forgiven
So I can be reached by the rays of sun

And once again be amongst the living
With all my deeds undone

And far far away
I'm closing my eyes
So I won't shed a tear
'cause a sailor never cries

Save me, please hear my voice
Over black waves and pouring rain

Hear me, give me a choice
Or my journey will be in vain

Sky and sea are suddenly meeting
In chaos dark and supreme

And I feel my heart beating
My ship floats into a violent stream

I'm so far away
I gaze at the skies
Still I won't shed a tear
'cause a sailor never cries

Save me, please hear my voice
Over black waves and pouring rain

Hear me, give me a choice
Or my journey will be in vain

Part II (The Kraken)

Far beneath in my abysmal sea grave
I open up my eyes

I've got you there in the calm of the storm's eye
I begin to rise

I'm the giant, I am the ancient
Creature of the deep

You are the blessed, you are the chosen
You disturbed my sleep

And so we meet eye to eye
Through the green waves

Seven long arms reach for the night sky
You're in my deadly grasp

I will awake you into this nightmare
Just to hear you gasp

Down, down into the rage of the night sea
We tumble on

For a moment in a deadly embrace then,
suddenly you're gone. And so we meet...

Deeper, sinking deeper
Life is fading, a calm is coming
I'm closing my eyes

Deeper, sinking deeper
Mist is fading, dawn is coming
One man will rise
Lo and behold - a miracle
The triumph of man over beast

Part III (Bittersweet Victory) Narrative

He is alive still he wishes he had died
Along with the creature he'd just
Fought and won

The sleep of the dead seems to him denied
Now after seeing his whole crew die
One by one

Day after day with no wind and no tide
Surrounded by ghosts from a distant shore

Night after night on the ocean he rides
Hands on the helm he steers to forevermore

Epilogue

So quiet not a sound
Above me only night

Alone out at sea
With no land in sight

I'm far far away on a wide, wide sea
Still come what may a sailor never cries

Save me, please hear my voice
Over black waves and pouring rain

Hear me, give me a choice
Or my journey will be in vain
