The ship set sail outta port
Deaded to the north

The fear and the smell of the sea
Will make you break
We're far out from land
So there won't be a hole in our way
Now bind with your footsteps
No longer grief will ingest
The dark was the night so my eyes
Can lay to rest

To all the men on board
Full speed the course
My heavy head is a port
Straight to the north

I once had a lady
That told me that we could be free
But I'm trapped on this boat
So for now my life will be the sea

Hold on to something
Cause this storm is rollin’ on in
My hands held by death
So god forgive me for all my sins

To all the men on board
Full speed the course
My heavy head is a port


from Cold Was The Ground, released February 28, 2015
