lyrics

LEVIATHAN DREAMING

For 16 years after the sky had fallen
I went out to sea
hunting whales with a harpoon gun
I fed my great country

I stood at that gun
held in cold suspension
watching, waiting, ready to fire
on the life that fills me with desire

Leviathan dreaming
until the end of time
I can hear you singing
in the shadows of my mind

Day after day on the open ocean
I'd rise for work before dawn
eyes trained on the icy water
so quickly they are gone

Leviathan dreaming
until the end of time
I can hear you singing
in the shadows of my mind

Leviathan dreaming
until the end of time
I can hear you singing
in the shadows of my mind

I live my life as an old man now
taking people out to see
