Treasure Island

Victoria Horn


Captain


Captain sir, the ship
The ship is sinking down
Far below the surface
Headed toward the ocean's ground
Captain sir, the ship
The waters are freezing
Too many passengers
This news is not pleasing
Captain sir, the ship
How could you let this pass?
So many faces scared
Destruction in great mass
Captain sir, the ship
You served your crew well
Our hats off to you
In this terrifying, cold, hell.

And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
