lyrics

They laid her down deep in the bowels of a ship that's been tossing turning now, 10 weeks out
Through fever dreams, thick like a moonless fog she can hear them whispering

"Her babe won't come, this labor can't last all night and death hanging 'oer us chokes our hearts, fear's like a vice. There's no more food, water that's black and sour, oh god don't let us die at sea"

"Forgive us this sin, great as the sin, that broke the world. Push open the porthole, send her out send her down down down. All the way down. Don't think now, just won't you send her down"

Oh weightless, sweet, cradled in oceans arms
faster she sinks a living stone, soon to sleep
the bottom waits, ready to erase, all but her last sigh
Peace
