These are the sentiments
Of a cold blooded cynic
So believe me when I say,
I would love nothing more.

Than for everything,
To end unpleasantly
Concrete shoes, rising tides,
Grey skies, Let none survive.
Go.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

I would rather see your face in Hell
Than speak another word
Of this perfect world.
I would rather see your face in Hell
Than speak another word
Of this perfect world, Ohh

Of this perfect world.

Oh, to be buried beneath the waves,
A sailors grave is all I crave.

Bury me (bury me),
5000 fathoms deep,
And leave my bones,
For the depths.

The sharpest teeth await our skin.
The sharpest teeth await...
Blood lust swarms,
Upon our worthless existence.

The Devil's teeth (the Devil's teeth),
The Devil's teeth,
Beneath our skin.
Whispering of silent vengeance.
Blood debts remain unpaid.

Now every breath of life
Has been betrayed.
Every ideal
Has rusted through.

Nothing we hold brings solace,
Feed us to the sharks.
So let nothing remain,
Feed us to the sea.

To be buried,
Beneath the waves.
A sailors grave it's all I crave.
Bury me (bury me),
5000 fathoms deep.
And leave my bones,
For the depths.

There's blood in the water,
(Sinking, always, sinking).
There's blood in the water,
(Sinking, always, sinking).

There's blood,
In the water.

I would rather see your face in Hell
Than speak another word
Of this perfect fucking world.

    One perfect society that owes something for someone, and this evil has alerted them, but nothing has been done. This song, to me, is about perfection being destroyed by the deep and every kind of animal and monster that live there, shapers teeth ripping away every life. A perfect society that owe the devil her perfection and pay it on blood. Metaphors, of course.

    Indeed a powerful and moving track! Boneyards can be referred to as a 'grave' 'to be buried beneath the waves, a sailors grave it's all i crave' this idea of the sea, the open waters with a monster stalking in the 'fathoms' hatred could also be argued as he wishes upon a certain person to come aboard this fate
