Lyrics by Nicky SICKBOY
Music by D.Phil JELLY & Nicky SICKBOY

lyrics

The helmsman of a shipwreck
Sinking like a stone
Down towards the sea bed where marooned sailors go
Was the truth of where I stood
With none to live for
(but) the winds took a turn as you did jump on board

Like the whistling of a mermaid
That blindly you follow
You caught me in your fishnets taking on control
Pulling me out of the stream
In which I was to drown
Full sail ahead to a fresh water’s call

You’re me hope you’re me anchor
Holding me on shore
Far from stormy weather and sheltered from the cold
In a hold I would molder
Rotten to the core
If your lamplighter hadn’t shone out through the fog

A life of constant roving
All around the globe
Is all I’ve been doing from the day that I was born
So worn out, a bit too old
To still undergo
The life you took me out of to you I’ll always owe

I’ve seen it all from the deck of my boat
I’ve seen it all and don’t want to see it no more
My heart had to be stolen from the throes of the sea
Killing once and for all
The atrocious memories
Of the mariner I used to be
