vacant ship lyrics – letter to the exiles

make this ship empty, the captain my crew. no skill did
we have or a song that we could sing.
stop the ship so i can see your face. drop the anchor,
drop the anchor.

the water is intimate, so let the ocean see his work,
light the waves on fire.
put them in flames, our ship will not sail in shadows
or be scared of the night.

burning away the darkness. flaming arrows will i see, i
don’t know where we’re going.
take my plans away, drop the anchor again. make me
landsick, make me landsick.
sharpen our blades and bring us war. make me forget my
name. bring us war.

bring us war. bring us war. bring us war. bring us
war… oh…

this ship won’t go down, our song will cut through the
waves and burn.
put the sky in flames, put the sky in flames.

burning away the darkness, flaming arrows will i sing.
i don’t know where we’re going.
take my plans away, drop the anchor again. make me
landsick, make me landsick.

we won’t lose this fight. we won’t lose this fight.
look at his work, we’ll see his glory. look at his
work, we’ll see his glory.
