about

The longest track on the CD, I've always enjoys songs which tell a story and this one is a tale of the seas and the legend which lies beneath.

lyrics

Tales of a great treasure far out to sea
Ripple across the towns of the doomed
Stories of the damned souls forever lost
About the men who were brave enough to face
the monstrosity beneath the sea
Eternal riches they seaked
glory shall be rewarded
To the men who tame the great beast

Ten thousand years
The beast has slept
Awoken, by the threat of man
Folklore becomes reality

A demon larger than the tallest ship ever built
The vile creature created by no god
With teeth sharper than the hardest steel
Capable of consuming and island whole
The Great King of the deep blue
A cursed being from the very depths of hell

Two hundred days
Spent out at sea
To discover our graves
At ten thousand feet

Many men left to claim its head
But none returned victorious
At the under most point of the ocean
The mythical beast still lies
The dreams of eternal fortune, just a whisper on the breeze
Death shall come to all those who dare to drift upon its tomb

On the seas we sail

12 men to man the Night's Gale
As much food as they could spare
Guns swords spears and rope they bring aboard
A one way voyage to the dark blue deep

With dreams
of buried wealth

The cries of their sons and wives
Still haunt their dreams
Drowned out by the chimes of gold
A journey into eternity

The Sea’s cursed storm
Forms from the sky

Wind picks up speed the waves begin to crash
Freezing rain, pounds our chests *
Below the surface, the water swells
Cannons to starboard, The beast approaches *

The Kraken’s calling from the deep
The Kraken’s calling from the deep

Sea salt stinging our wounds
As the demon rips the ship apart
Splintering wood and the cries of our crew
Our dreams, fade into the dark

The Captain standing on the sinking ship
Turns towards the wretched beast
Thrusts his cutlass, into its eye
The final great battle of the brine *

The brave Captain and his crew
Lie dead deep in the caves
The Sea’s cursed storm rages on
For another hundred days


The great Kraken retreats and waits to be healed
A creature that no man can kill
The monstrosity beneath the sea
