Lyrics

To and fro, feeling the power, the toss and tow. Now is the hour, to go below. Sailing a dark sea of pain.
Wait for me. Tossing and turning, too late for me. Hoping and yearning, give up the key.
A chest of scars hidden awaits.
Boat taking water, help nowhere in sight, and the waves getting meaner, and cold in the night.
Fingers grab for a handhold; I cry out in anger. My hands have gone numb, as I grope for an anchor.
To and fro, feeling the power, the toss and tow. Now is the hour, to go below. Sailing a dark sea of shame.
Wait for me. Tossing and turning, too late for me. Hoping and yearning, give up the key.
A chest of dark secrets awaits.
Boat is capsizing. A frozen fog covers with ice, all the masting, and rails going under,
The roar of the ocean. I cry out in anger. The siren’s sweet song is a deafening clangor.
Boat of hope vanished. I’m bone cold, exhausted. The life vest is failing. I’m panicking, flailing,
And grasping at water. I cry out in anger. Then down through the current, to stew in my rancor.
To and fro, feeling the power, the toss and tow. Now is the hour, I go below.
Don’t wait for me. Tossing and turning, too late for me. No hoping or yearning, give up the key.
A chest of dark spirits awaits.
