lyrics

Penultimate destination,
Few aboard have been before
Filled with sudden foreboding
I have no wish to go ashore

We make safe our landing
But as we stow our wares
Dark clouds on the horizon
Only compound my fears

We are never getting out of here
With our lives and sanity
Never to see home or kin
This I know with certainty

Our business completed
We return to the docks
A sudden storm front rising
Vessel smashed upon the rocks

We are never getting out of here
With our lives and sanity
Never to see home or kin
This I know with certainty
Such dreadful certainty

Dreams of
My home
Haunt me
Every single night
Something
Building
Inside
I must let it out

One night in the tavern I hear
A familiar voice
A merchant from my homeland
I do not have a choice

As he leaves I Follow
And when we are alone
Unsheath my knife and quietly
I slit his throat

Swaddled in his cloak
I board his ship
The arms men of the watch
Know that I am not him

We are never getting out of here
With our lives and sanity
Never to see home or kin
This I know with certainty

I am never getting out of here
My life is forfeit
Imprisoned its remainder
For the throat I slit
This I know with certainty
…Absolute certainty
