lyrics

poor leviathan

they called him a monster, hunted his hide. sharpening teeth while waiting for the tide saying he is so strong he once took a thousand men to the deepest of water never heard from them again.
oh no poor leviathan you king of the sea and the dark hearts of men. i died there once, and i will die there again, in the mouth of old leviathan.
we keep our lamps trimmed and burning with the oil from his flesh. you know he saw it coming you know he knew what hit him when they shot him through his chest. they dragged him ashore to the cheers of the crowd, filleted him while still alive. they carved him up and fed him the their children saying praise the good lord we’re satisfied.
oh no poor leviathan, you king of the seas and the dark hearts of men, i died there once, and i will die there again, in the mouth of old leviathan. and there is no moral to the
oldest of tales. they will still cut your lines and burn all your sails, it’s their fear of the reckoning and their doubt that prevails, but poor leviathan the accused was only just a lie
of a whale.
