  • Lyrics: Decadently sprawled across a jetty feasting shellfish and brineSlapping seaweed with her tail as if the ocean turned to wineA lovely tune befell her lips that quivered slightly in the breezeAcross the world a cannon sent a whiplash through the seaShe was quite startled so dove deeper towards the ruinsShe called the ancient place a home the way a corpse could call its tombTo liven up her barnacled home she'd set the table with the bonesof men long dead with vacant eyes - she'd made a sea harp of they're thighsto play the skeletons a tune which wailed of men and ships of doomThey came and took her love away in netting reeking of decayPoor mute and dumb they listened on to vengeful Oceana's songA lonely companion shares noneA lonely companion shares noneAnd somewhere hidden in a cage of water watched without wavesher lover teaches newborn calls and of oceans without wallsThough we're captives without choice we long for Oceana's voiceOceans voice could bend these walls and bring the last cruel mans downfall.Crawl from craggy ocean's beach and turn your scales to skinand listen closely I beseech your worlds about to endYou long to sing out like the whales - make tidal waves by slaps of tailto smash the sailors on the stones and lure old Neptune from his throneA lonely companion shares noneA lonely companion shares none
