lyrics

So long my friends
Tonight will be our last

A mutiny is surrounding
My every act was for naught

Sea walls are caving in, what is happening?
I can’t see ten steps in front of me
My hands they are a-shake as I walk this plank
It’s a reason to maroon
So take me away to another place

I’ll be alone on my lifeboat, barely alive
But still breathing

A mutiny is surrounding
My thoughts driving me out of my mind

Shackles ‘round my feet
Their troubled gazes meet, summoning the ammunition
Please no, please no, please no
No one told me why everyone must die

I pull his blindfold off
“It will be over soon. Stay alert, it’s all you can do.”
Said my sister as she pulls the cannonball
Tied to that noose around my neck
Those blood ties we share
Don’t break our fall from grace

Suddenly the deck transforms
Into a glittering ballroom floor
And the seasick sailors
Lock step into a psychopathic tango
And they swing and they dance
‘Till the dusk turns into dawn

I crumble to the disco floor
Upon an inauspicious moon
Asking why can’t I cut this rope in two
Find justice through this impending doom

So long my friends
This will be our last goodbye
Goodbye!

My every act was for naught

My hands they are a-shake as I walk this plank
It’s a reason to jump…

But I’m alone on my lifeboat, barely alive
But I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing.
