Leviathan by Jina Wallwork

Leviathan (lyrics)

 

I remember my homeland beneath my feet

Crying as I fought to prepare the fleet

A restriction on seeking kisses and peace

A discovery is hidden inside the reef

Losing all my hope, I trample and stride  

 

Nine thousand ships have sailed with my name on the side

While I’ve been chasing a leviathan

I’m pretending that I’m moving on

Cause I know that I’ll never come home

Oh, I’ll never come home

 

I imagined a giant behind a claw

Monster in a rage to conquer the shore

A delusion for farmers unsure and calm

The creation of soldiers prepared to harm

Armies in a war will wither with fright  

 

Nine thousand ships have sailed with my name on the side

While I’ve been chasing a leviathan

I’m pretending that I’m moving on

Cause I know that I’ll never come home

Oh, I’ll never come home

 

I’m looking for a way back home

I’m looking for a way back home

I’m looking for a way back home.

 

A disruption of simple attempts to grow

Soldiers in a cage so strangled they row

The unchaining of lovers ignites a blaze       

The displacement of people distressed and dazed

Claiming a new land, I destroy this tribe

 

Nine thousand ships have sailed with my name on the side

While I’ve been chasing a leviathan

I’m pretending that I’m moving on

Cause I know that I’ll never come home

Oh, I’ll never come home
