Guano Apes – When The Ships Arrive lyrics
I leave you tomorrow
Will you hunt my shadow
You treat me like horror
I'm not feeding your violence
Force you with the silence

I'm leaving the harbour
Tear drops to swallow
We stay on the water
Till your sonic reaches out for an aim

And I will cry
Out for the ocean
'Cause when the ships arrive I cannot
Hope for a mayday

They call our names
We will fade away
Will they be ashamed
When we fade away

So who do you follow
Humans of sorrow
Come down into the hollow
Tearing me up in vain

And I will cry
Out for the ocean
'Cause when the ships arrive I cannot
Hope for a mayday, no

And I will cry
For the ocean
'Cause when the ships arrive we cannot
Hope for a mayday (mayday)

We fly like the wind
And dive into the ground
I'm hiding in the sand
Till the night brings us out

Whoa whoa oh oh
Whoa whoa oh oh
Whoa whoa oh oh
Whoa whoa oh oh

And I will cry
Out for the ocean
'Cause when the ships arrive I cannot
Hope for a mayday, no

And I will cry
Out for the ocean
'Cause when the ships arrive I cannot
Hope for a mayday (mayday)
