1. Watery Graves (5:22)
Hundreds of sailors
Their lives slip away
As their lungs fill with icy death

The ship has gone down
There is no land in sight
No one will survive
From the cold and the waves

Torpedo finds its mark
Hundreds die for the cause
Ocean claims what now it owns

Bodies travel in legions of corpses
On a never ending journey
Bobbing and bowing
At the whim of the ocean
Decaying and bloated
Food for the fish

How long will they travel
Following the current
Until their bodies snag on some land
Sometimes they are submerged
And fish eat the flesh to the bone

Sometimes they are bloated
Easy prey for birds who peck at organs exposed
An eternal journey through watery graveyards
Even now submerged

Torpedo finds its mark
Hundreds die for the cause
Ocean claims what now it owns

Dog tags are rusting
Uniforms rotting
Eyeballs float out the skull
No peace for these deceased
Journey into hell
No one will remember
When all men have fell

Pale forms roll and somersault
Too far down to be clearly seen
Their corrupted faces
Better defined as they rise
The dead in dozens
Crab-picked and fish peeked
Their remaining flesh scarcely
Sitting on their bones

Their hair is swaying loosely in the current
Their heads lull and dance on rotting neck muscles

The sea looses possession
With each wave a lifeless shell
Spat out by the sea to stink for a while
And be stripped by the gulls
Picked at by crabs
The flies buzz in and out
Laying eggs that turn into maggots
The maggots feast on what the gulls leave behind
To one sprout wings and fly away too

Stripped by the gulls
Picked at by crabs
The flies buzz in and out
Their flesh crawl with maggots
2. Edge of Death (2:58)
Waiting quietly for the dawn
Watching over the hills
The fire glows it keeps you warm
On the edge of the night

Looking out upon the mob
They’ve got death in their eyes
Is it fate that claims your life,
Or some other man’s lies ?

On the Edge of Death
See your life before your eyes
On the Edge of Death
The Reaper has come
Now it’s your turn to die

The noose is placed around your neck
The blood runs cold in your veins
Mr. Death waits in the wind
To take you out of this place

The preacher speaks the final words
That you are to hear
Dreams of life after death
To cast out the fear

Fight for your soul
The Reaper is here
This is the end
Screaming, it’s time to go
On the Edge of Death
3. Under the Spell (3:03)
If your life is stalling and you are falling
You hear it calling beware
If you are waiting, anticipating
What lies in store for you there

Taking you on a journey
To a place of screaming laughter
You’ll be lost in the end

Your mind is racing, almost tasting it
You are soon out of time
While you’re learning your candle’s burning
Ever deeper you climb

Taking you on a journey
To a place of screaming laughter
In the end you will find

Like a soul trapped in hell
You are Under the Spell.

Come closer my friend
Gaze into the ancient pages
Learn the secrets of the ages
You may have all you desire
But the weak of mind will burn
In fire
