lyrics

You’re fearless and lawless, you follow no captain
But you’re ruled by desire approaching obsession
I am a shapely vessel full of riches to plunder
I’ve been breached before, but I’ve never gone under

You cannon blasts split me, resolutely defiled
I am humbled and broken by a boyish smile
You enter violently, but this was my plan
You think it all your choice, you arrogant man!

Your type can never resist my call
I have been so many sailors’ downfall
Your type can never resist my call
I have been so many conquerors’ downfall

Racing the hourglass to escape with my treasure
But my humiliation promises such pleasure
This is the glorious destruction you’ve wrought
You can’t deny yourself the wounded beast you caught

I’m losing my grip on the horizon
You clutch at me tightly as the water is rising
I am a shattered vessel, full of riches, going down
But you’re the one begging as I watch you drown
