  • Sticks and stones
    Are for you, you land living bones
    Salt and water melt my skin
    So don't set sail,
    You'll end up in the belly of a whale
    No swallowed saint will mark your grave
    Every light of every day
    Eats away into decay

    [Chorus]
    But I won't cry myself to sleep
    'Cause my soul no longer weeps
    For my body lies
    In the heart of the sea

    Darkness breaks and with her
    The morning wakes
    She mocks us weary as we drown
    Show no remorse, as you will make
    A beautiful corpse
    Next to the one you love the most
    Every light of every day
    Eats away into decay
    Don't fornicate
    With the one you love to hate
    You'll wind up dead
    Before she bows

    [Chorus]

    Another useless confrontation
    Leaves eighty-eight lost constellations
    And now the end appears
    And my eyes are filled with fear

    [Repeat x2]
    I am blind, I am blind
    Dig me up before I die
    I don't want to end up
    In the heart of the sea

    Now the lesson is learnt
    Don't swim out too far from your berth
    Walk it's better, even through defeat

    [Chorus]
    'Cause my soul no longer weeps
    For my body lies
    In the heart of the sea
