lyrics

There is a dark and lonely place
So vast and quiet, shadowy and deep
Where sunlight never shows its face
A swirl of current, become chains around your feet

He knows the way a ship can change a man
Only his crew remembers when he smiled
He keeps them gathered, ready at hand
If just to remind him of better times

Searching for Jaguars in the sea
Terrible tigers gnash their teeth
Set on revenge with no retreat
Down is forward sinking deep

The ocean is full of secrets
A voice calling out it’s regrets
treasure buried for ages
waves rolling over it’s pages

Beautiful sky, expansive and blue
Away from land, the only thing seen is you
Are you the reflection of what’s below?
Can you provide refuge so that he can know?

Remember dear Ahab, so lost in his rage
revenge isn’t sweet once it’s trapped inside a cage
a lifetime spent searching for a glimpse of truth
scale out of balance until hung by a tooth

Searching for Jaguars in the sea
Terrible tigers gnash their teeth
Set on revenge with no retreat
Down is forward sinking deep

The ocean is full of secrets
A voice calling out it’s regrets
treasure buried for ages
waves rolling over it’s pages


Searching for Jaguars in the sea
Terrible tigers gnash their teeth
Set on revenge with no retreat
Down is forward sinking deep

The ocean is full of secrets
A voice calling out it’s regrets
treasure buried for ages
waves rolling over it’s pages
