lyrics

We are departing on a journey that will take us to the ends of the earth
The true embodiment of freedom awaits all those who desire to prove their worth
Never have you felt this kind of strength
Carrying the weight of your brothers in hand
Living on the edge of existence
Controlling the hands of providence

Beyond cerulean crests
Into extrinsic depths
Though we sail without uncertainty
It’s clear we ride the edge of sanity these days
On the horizon appears a vision of power
That’s closing in for convergence soon this day

Could you have ever believed you’d live this way
At the mercy of the sea
Through the gale we will find our fortune
No matter the cost

And I saw through the looking glass a storm
The likes of which no man could suffer
A destroyer
An ender of worlds
This is our time
Our tale
We are not lost

Hold fast
For all your fellow men
We will forever change what courage means
We’ll redefine bravery
This I swear

In our defiance we challenge the gods
But be not quick to forget
This battered vessel our only reprieve from the agony of these crushing depths
A blacker abyss than you could conceive
Is what awaits you beneath these waves

Could you have ever believed you’d live this way
Without hope to see the day
Through the fear we can still recover
All’s not been lost

I beg your allegiance in these trying times
When the only measure of a man is the respect that he’s earned
Will you follow me
Into the tempest
