lyrics

Chapter 123: The Musket

Spinning in the storm,
An angel adored me,
Tempted my escape from every claimant,
And we'd take the open sea,
And turn it around.

A token of the war
In every arrangement
Made between a man and that which taints him --
It's a life to overthrow,
May heaven allow.

Tell me, could it be the loss,
The stinging loss
I feel in every dream? In every
Meaning lost to waves in rugged sea?

Here I stand alone,
At opposite corners
From my only duty as I claim it --
Can I take the open sea,
And turn it around?

Tell me, could it be the loss,
The stinging loss
I feel in every dream? In every
Meaning lost to waves in rugged sea?
