On the Water Lyrics

3. On the Water (5:08)
Lower the flag, sound the bell, I remember hearing as the ship was going down
We filled the boat and cut the line
Cast our lot and favor to the cruelty of the sea

Full seven men, packed tightly in
Two burned and bleeding from the fires on our ship
The captains voice, across the night
Called ‘mind me to my children, I am headed for the deep’

On the water

When hunger came, all reason left
We drifted far into the fog, a great bird overhead
The silent mist, then madness came
We are the butchers, the eaters of the dead

I blessed the blade, I cut the neck
We drank the blood upon the deck, we are the damned

Fifteen weeks till rescue came
When only we three came ashore their mothers turned away

We dealt the cards, we cut the deck
We drank the blood, we ate the flesh, we are the damned

Well the sun turned black and the sky was falling, three men left by the light of the morning
And the madness came and the gulls were calling, and there were there men left by the light of the morning, and the sun turned black
