I crewed on a fair golden ship that
Went down at the dawn of the world
We mutinied had sentenced our captain to die
'Fore our sails had barely unfurled

We sank shortly after our riot
Wanton flames and our powder kegs met
While I swam for my life became voices aloft
Joyful, unearthly and dread

Singing of a violent
Tireless mystery
That one would give his life
To save his enemies

Too bone tired to keep my arms moving
To swim or even grasp out to straws
Undertow drew me down into its cold
And infinite, indigo jaws

I was singing of a violent
Tireless mystery
That one would give his life
To save his enemies

Thought I must be dead or dreaming
When my captain still battered, betrayed
Pulled me up, laid me over the beam he clung to
Breathed his last and sank under the waves

Your body is a bridge
Across an endless sea
Your body is a bridge
Across an endless sea
