A 'Zee Shanty'

We’ve all heard this one, right?

Thanks to Failbetter Games for all their lovely work. Hope you enjoy!

You waved to me upon the pier
That’s how we parted ways
Your face was lost within the fog
Missed in the sunken haze

We fled that wretched haze my dear
The lives that we had sold
The hold jam packed with sunlit stone
The sea so still and cold

The sea’s so very cold my dear
My breath it’s bound to take
But colder still’s the icy gaze
That follows in our wake

It follows as we wake my love
And it dreams us while we sleep
Its shadow haunts the lidless waves
In silence walks the deep
