Take one last breath
Your about to jump to your death
Your about to jump to your death

Sail away from the shoreline
Sail away from the shore
I'm in front of Heavens door.

Sail away from the shoreline
Sail away from the shore
I'm in front of Heavens door.

Captain Captain
Before the sail rips
Captain Captain
I see the enemy ships
Captain Captain
Before the sail rips
Gasp for air

Abandon all ships!
The currents strong,
The waves will rise
The binding chains made me realize
Sin is the anchor, holding you down.
I'm on a cruise to Paradise.
I'm done with sin I've paid my price.
God is your captain, change your direction
Abandon all ships
Abandon all ships.

We'll part the sea!
Choose your side,
Don't come with me
You decide,
We'll Part the sea
Don't come with me.

Sail away from the shoreline
Sail away from the shore
I'm in front of Heavens door.

Ooh!
Look what we've built, walking the plank of guilt.
Look what we've built, walking the plank of guilt.
Look what we've built, walking blindfolded.
Look what we've built, blindfolded walking on a plank of guilt.
Look what we've built.

The currents strong,
The waves will rise
The binding chains made me realize
Sin is the anchor, holding you down.
I'm on a cruise to Paradise.
I'm done with sin I've paid my price.
God is your captain, change your direction
Abandon all ships

    This song reminds me that god is the leader of your life and that everything that happens to you in life is for a reason and that it's all a part of our captains plan

    I find the meaning behind take one last breath as a realization in the writers faith in god. It shows the side of follwers and those who oppose.
