The Shipwreck of Lies

Sailing on as the sun is rising
The clearness of day brings a false sense of peace
Clouds rolling in as I hear their voices
The sun goes grey as we crash through those waves

Their song, distant and long
Growing intense, casting its spell
Luring me, out of the deep
I must obey, I must betray
Myself on these seas, so my hands freeze
I cannot turn away from what is calling to me
Can’t be set free
This is the shipwreck of lies that fools believe

Sure as the moon pulls the water into waves
I swoon as the breeze brings a chill to my face
The most beautiful sound, the most delicate lines
With a wistful detachment that words can’t describe

Their song, distant and long
Growing intense, casting its spell
Luring me, out of the deep
I must obey, I must betray
Myself on these seas, so my hands freeze
I cannot turn away from what is calling to me
Can’t be set free
This is the shipwreck of lies that fools believe
