Into The Maelstrom

from by Adversary

lyrics

Her fictitious eyes were lit by the moon of an almost fictitious sky
I thought I smelled her fragrance through the sea salt breeze
We danced at midnight truly oblivious to the peril around us
We danced, the boards creaked and bottles rolled back and forth

Bound to a vessel, in spirit, the ship's a part of me
Bound to a life at sea when I left and neglected royalty
Innocence was gone... it left the moment the plague entered
Inside our home and took you... our love splintered
Derelict now, I have become one with the seven

My ship was true and my crew was dead, they lay all about the deck
Famine had taken them and taken me, yet I still breathe life
A deal with the devil has saved me thus far, but into the maelstrom we sail
Me and my love reunited again in this final dance of death

Deep in the maelstrom we go, into this black abyss below
Only I know how deep it goes and what awaits at the bottom
We dance to the thunder in childish delight and stare up above at the lightning
When it lights the seraphim are visible, staring sadly above

I cursed my men and I cursed my own soul for one last infernal dance
Back from death she was brought for a midnight meeting
Dance we shall, until the bottom, with skeletons watching around
Until flames pick our flesh and rum bottles roll to and fro

O’ Death has come back to find me again
The sea swallows me down with my men
And if I should fall to my doom on this night
I’ll know it was worth everything for the
Sight of her face staring at me, reunited, reliving dreams
With the wind in my sails, carrying me to a place of infinite seas

I never got a chance to say goodbye to her
I knew I’d see her again in this life or the next
God would never ever stop me on my quest

O’ Death has come back to find me again
The sea swallows me down with my men
And if I should fall to my doom on this night
I’ll know it was worth everything for the
Sight of her face staring at me, reunited, reliving dreams
With the wind in my sails, carrying me to a place of infinite seas

I know I'll see her again in this life or the next
This tempest will not founder me; it guides me towards my end
To the gates of Hell and back I’ll sail to be with her again
