Versuri Thrice - The Great Exchange

Album: Thrice - Beggars (2009)

I crewed on a fair golden ship that
Went down at the dawn of the world
Mutinied and sentenced our captain to die
For our sails had barley unfurled

But we sank shortly after our riot
Once the flame and our powder kegs met
While I swam for my life there came voices aloft
Joyful unearthly and dread

Singing over violence
Tireless misery (or mystery?)
If one would give his life to
Save his enemy

Too bone tired to keep my arms moving
To swim or even grasp after straws
Undertow drew me down into its cold
And infinite indigo jaws

I am Singing over violence
Tireless misery
If one would give his life to
Save his enemy

I thought I must be dead or dreaming
When my captains still battered betrayed
pulled me up layed me over the beam he'd clung to
Breathed his last and sank under the waves

Your body is a bridge
You crossing in the sea
Your body is a bridge
You crossing in the sea
