Blood sky every morning
Should have seen the warning
Captain to the seamen
Man your battle stations
Poseidon's on a mission
About to turn it up to eleven

Captain to the seamen
Assume crash positions
Toss the extras over
About to take on water

Blood sky every morning
(All hands on deck)
Should have seen the warning
(Crash positions)
Poseidon's on a mission
(Brace yourself)
About to turn it up to eleven

Mind the sails, mind the sails!
All hands on, all hands on deck!
Women and children first!
Bail! Son of... BAIL, BAIL, BAIL!
Brace yourself, brace yourself!
Brace yourself, brace yourself for twelve!
All hands on, all hands on deck!
All hands on, all hands on...

Blood sky every morning
(ALL HANDS ON, ALL HANDS ON DECK! )
Should have seen the warning
(WOULD'VE, COULD'VE, SHOULD'VE! )
Poseidon's on a mission
(BRACE YOURSELF, BRACE YOURSELF! )
About to turn it up to eleven
(BRACE YOURSELF, BRACE YOURSELF FOR TWELVE! )

Captain to the seamen
(HERE COME THE GALES! MIND THE SAILS! )
Assume impact position
(ALL HANDS ON, ALL HANDS ON DECK! )
Toss the extras over
(WOMEN AND CHILDREN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST! )
About to take on water
(BAIL! SON OF... BAIL! BAIL! BAIL! )
Posidon's on a mission
(BRACE YOURSELF, BRACE YOURSELF! )
About to turn it up to eleven
(BRACE YOURSELF, BRACE YOURSELF FOR TWELVE! )
Poseidon's on a mission
(BRACE YOURSELF, BRACE YOURSELF! )
About to turn it up to eleven
(BRACE YOURSELF, BRACE YOURSELF FOR TWELVE! )

    Learn to swim! Learn to swim! - it means whatever you think it means. Maynard wants us all to get lost in the music...

    He uses terms form pop culture like "all hands on deck" and "women and children first". Compared to his other songs which express more emotion i tihnk this one is more a mockery of false prophets.

    I would say in my expert opinion, as a lyrisist, love maker and sailor. I would say that the 11, 12 re: in this song refers to the "beaufont scale" for storm interpretation. Henceforth the rising sea's

    Yeah it's totally linked to his other "11" stuff with definate ties to 2012 and the global warming/solar flare, flood theory. And also definately bail sailor, not son of... That doesnt even make sense -. -

    This song is a culmination of prophetic songs written by maynard, all the way back to jimmy (1 and 1 are 1, 11, so glow, child, glow), and the grudge (saturn ascends, choose 1 or 10, hang on or be humbled again). Without going into the esoteric symbolism, 11 represents transition, an unhinging, and a movement towards humility, often through destruction of pre-conceived notions.

    However, 11 in this song is put in the context of the phenomenal world, and implies natural destruction that will wreck our collective boat. Listen to sour grapes from the last album. "brace yourself for 12" implies that the coming transition is only the beginning of something beyond our imagining.

    Some of us have been waiting for this warning, and now we will be tested to see if we are capable of being truly as righteous as maynard would hope for us to be. Godspeed.
