(Verse)
We were only doing what the captain said
We all went down with the ship
The cause left splintered only thing I had
We all went down with the ship

(Verse)
The captain calls his pirates and the virgin assassins
But told he would reach paradise
Down is an army with following orders
But see it in his hellous eyes

(Verse)
It pulled out the monsters like deep in the mind
We all went down with the ship
The bayonets rusted on the fiery line
We all went down with the ship

(Verse)
I heard all the men who were sent to the trenches
And those beyond my scrapes
Powers of the british and we go to war
In charge of the light brigade

(Pre-Chorus)
And it's a long long way down
To the bed of the sea
Oh I will sink until she
She covers me

(Chorus)
We'll suffer for another man's falling
Blindsided by an ego that can't stop
We sink to the bottom to rise to the top and say
We all fall under the spell of the charmer
Devil's tongue from the shepherd to his flock
We sink to the bottom to rise to the top and say

(Verse)
I never would've taken what the general desired
We all went down with the ship
In the land of the evil and the noble empire
We all went down with the ship

(Verse)
The terrible persuasion of the master's hand
Shadowed in the ark of his rule
This history lesson takes a measure of sand
As the tricks in his thoughts have returned

(Pre-Chorus)
And it's a long long way down
To the bed of the sea
Oh I will sink until she
She covers me

(Chorus)
We'll suffer for another man's falling
Blindsided by an ego that can't stop
We sink to the bottom to rise to the top and say
We all fall under the spell of the charmer
Devil's tongue from the shepherd to his flock
We sink to the bottom to rise to the top and say

(x6)
We were doing what the captain said
We went down, we went down as she went down with the ship
