The Deep

Cowardly birds above

Savage sharks below

And us inbetweeners

On a ship of horrors

For the kraken waits

And we all know

While safe for now

It’s only a matter of time

Until doom comes for us

All we have is our wits

Our faith in each other

And a mighty ship

Built of naïve hope

That we may outlive the dangers

The beast, the destroyer of worlds

Stalks us from the deep

So that even the wildest sharks

Align with its wicked will

And maybe someday

We’ll make it back to shore

Our lives secure and safe

But if there’s one thing I know

It’s that fate is cruel

So we float on

Awaiting the judgement

Of the merciless sea
