Into Nothing (black water song)

Sail on now, out into darkness
Oh my boys
How these black waters rise

Sail on, with a thousand
Goodbyes burning
Back across the shore line

And silently we’ll watch
The buildings tumble
Grey tattered steel
hung across the horizon

I keep my eyes far
From the city
Where the sad sun rises
Only to set

And who is this
Who walks beside us,
Cloaked in sorrow
And in tears?
His voice it whispers
In our ears
But when we listen
There is no one there
For us to hear

Sail on now, into black waters
Leave your dreaming for awhile
Sail on now into silence
Out into nothing
…I suppose

Sail on into darkness
Oh my love
How these black waters rise

Sail on now into the silence
That waits in turn
For the word to speak

Sail on
though hope shall not hold us
As the night comes on
I will wrap around you
All the light
That I can hold
All the light now
That I can bleed

Sail on now into nothing
Leave your harbor safe and warm
It’s tattered sails and cardboard ships
Only play host to the starving ghosts

And who is this who stands beside us
Known in emptiness and in blood

Sail on into nothing

Out into nothing
