Track Name: Death of Submariner
Deep underwater, below warm currents, below the world.
The ship is black with rust in the pipes and the fire inside is our only light.
My crewmate calls, "we're all alive" but his voice is so dim with the hell in my mind.
Over and over I pray to my Lord that my outreached hand with open the door.
My Lord, My Lord.
My coffin is sinking I can't swim to shore, tell my wife and my kids I'm not coming home.
Like a bird to the ocean I will drop down.
Send my family peace and bury me above ground.
In my last moment Lord send me grace.
My coffin is emptied and I am released.
There is no pain that I will hold in my heart.
