lyrics

She sang to me, saying "Don't wake your father.
Here's a tale of sea and fear.
Underneath the waves, seaweed and armour
from the brave who failed to beware."

"'Cause the serpent guards bones and lost treasure
from the gaze of curious minds.
It is said, my girl, if you tell of his hoardings,
you'll be frozen still, for sharks to find."

"Oh the horrors of men - your father remembers -
if you think you can, don't speak it here.
For those teeth, like knives, will rise from the water.
Oh they rip and slice loose tongues, my dear."

"I know of a child, too wild, just like you are.
She swam to find his secrets.
And the serpent roared, as she pawed through his riches
saying none was worth his loneliness."

"The storms came then. Blood tides over water,
as he raged and chewed young flesh.
'Don't think you are so different,' the serpent said,
'Ideals all taste like selfishness.'"

"Oh the horrors of men - your father remembers -
if you think you can, don't speak it here.
For those teeth, like knives, will rise from the water.
Oh they rip and slice loose tongues, my dear."

She looked at me, my hollow-faced mother
with eyes that begged I understand.
"Now sleep, my girl. Stay in your room,
lest you feel the bite of your fathers hand."

"Oh the horrors of men - you know he remembers -
if you think you can, don't speak it here.
Those teeth,
Those knives,
come high from the water.
They reach far and wide as all our fears.
Oh they rip and slice loose tongues, my dear."
