We spend a life together
That should have last forever
But now it's time so sail on

So take this anchor from my heart
So we can finally drift apart
Before we drown in sorrow

Ooohh, ooohh, ooohh

I gave you sanctuary
Under the sun we lived care free
I tried so hard to love you

But then you turned your back on me
Your good intention turned to greed
And now it's good to know that you have been

Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up

The bluest skies turn into gray
Through tortured eyes I watched you change
A paradise went up in flames

And though I cried a thousand times
You didn't hear the rising tide
There's nowhere left to hid since you have been

Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up

Your devastation took it's toll
As the waves came crashing to the coast
This sinking ship I'm taking back from your control
It felt so good to cross my arms and renounce my faith in mankind
How could you ever be so blind to think that you'd survive?

Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up by the ocean
I hope you know that nothing matters now that you have been
Swallowed up by the ocean
Swallowed up by the ocean
I hope you know this ship has finally come to rest
I hope you know this ship has finally come to rest
I hope you know someday this ship will be your end
