Adrift

lyrics

I have faced a hundred armies
I have been a mercenary, too
Imagine taking lives with
A thousand deaths denied from you

Never gonna see my country prosper
Never gonna stand with brothers lost at war
Never gonna taste the gift of freedom;
I'm bound and shackled forevermore

The lone survivor adrift on the endless sea
The abyss beckons me

Oh, witness

Bodies on the ramparts and banners stained with blood
I am cursed and deathless, the silence deafens
Fortune will provide fresh wind for my sails
Upon a lonely tide I drift home

Inside there is a yearning
To embrace the ground with open arms
Never gonna gaze into the eyes
Of mercy, splendor, grace, or lore

The lone survivor adrift on the endless sea
The abyss beckons me

The waves roll on and everything I've lost is swallowed whole

SOLO: Wright

The lone survivor adrift on the endless sea
The abyss beckons me

Oh, witness

Bodies on the ramparts and banners stained with blood
I am cursed and deathless, the silence deafens
Fortune will provide fresh wind for my sails
Upon a lonely tide I drift home
