Gentle Giant – Wreck Lyrics

The ship’s rising up from the sea to the sky heyeheh Hold on

Just one sorry scream and a desperate cry heyeheh Hold on

Their lives pass before them before they die heyeheh —

The sea yawns around like a boiling hell heyeheh hold on

And souls disappear with the toll of that bell heyeheh hold on

The arms of the sea they are dragging them down heyeheh hold on

And sorrows and sins they are lost as they drown heyeheh —

How strange when you think that the sea was their way;

And a meaningless death is the price they pay

For their living was made from the deep

To their people in comfort and keep

Keep all their people and places there

Never to be seen again, never to be loved and their last embrace —

And the kiss has a salt bitter taste

Now all that remains is the deep cruel sea heyeheh hold on

And wreckage of things that used to be heyeheh hold on

No stone marks the place of that watery grave heyeheh hold on

Together they die both the weak and the brave heyeheh hold on

The arms of the sea…. etc.
