​The Ocean

This song is by Galleon and appears on the album From Land to Ocean (2003).

Beginning

Winds and rain still no life in sight
Just a bleak light of creations first sigh
But when it starts it never stops
Just different paths on the brushy way from start
Extinction
Evolution
Life will find a way

It started small in muddy bottom holes
But soon the dinos come to roame it all
Some million years of full control
Before it ended with a blow

But life is strong it provails just every time
Just new directions on the tree of here and gone
Devestation or Destruction
Life will find a way

But how long will this go on
The cyclic motion of life
Forever or what

Five times it stopped with chaos and with death
Each time the process found new ways to erect
But this time it started up again
It took a fatal turn

And then came the man to begin the human plan
Develop and to take evolutions big mistake


And on...

The primitive man fished with hooks made of bones
Not plenty they could get
The modern man fish with gear
Bringing surplus and a wholesale net

The primitive man got a catch for a few
Not overfishing the big old blue
The modern man rakes the waters
Leaving little for the next me and you
The primitive man filled his belly
The modern fills the account
And when the working day is through
The market claims it's dues

More
More

The primitive man couldn't see down below
Just dreaming of a world to be explored
The modern man has equipment
Leaving nothing to be unfold

They fantasized of a manifold world
And creatures never seen
But today if you 're lucky
You'll find shreds or everythings green
The primitive man filled his belly
The modern fills the account
And when the working day is through
The market claims it 's dues

More
More
Much wants more
The devil wants souls
Much more

International

The consumer friendly society
Grows fast and it grows with greed
East wants to be like west
To be rich and runned by the market man

Capitalism... Bleeding business
Stock exchange... Utopia
Democrasy... Hypocrisy
Multinational trading... Our saviour



Killer Green

Green
The colour of a puttin' green
It's spreading like a disease
And it's made for the human need

A little experiment
With genes and DNA
A tropical algea
Invades and it will stay

Growing twice as fast
As the original life on the seafloor
Smothering all other plants
Leaving nothing for the rest to feed upon

Some said it's the natural way
For nature and evolution
But bringing a mutated plant
Can't be the right solution

Doesn't scientists understand
That they can't run around acting goods
This is a fragile world
So don't fuck around with the odds


Bermuda

Into the mystic deep of the atlantic ocean
Lots of ships and aeroplanes has vanished into thin air
Scientists and ufofreaks are fighting about the notion
The triangle theory is still waiting to be revealed

Facts and fairytales
Inner space unexplored

Strange vapors, time warps, fogs and wormholes
Electromagnetism and methane gas
A lot of speculation about this area in the sea
A lot of mystery to thrill you and me

Facts and fairytales
Inner space unsolved

Bermuda obscure lights
Keeps it's secrets very tight
It will take you for a ride
Between dreams and reality

Maybe connected to other dimensions
Or is it here atlantis comes around

Facts and fairytales
Inner space unexplored

Bermuda obscure lights
Keeps it's secrets very tight
It will take you for a ride
Between dreams and reality


Atlantis

Into atlantis and the antediluvian world
With platos and with other words
A superculture from long ago
The golden island every man wants to behold

Many theories many fantasies
A society in perfect harmony
Celebrated for it's virtue and for it's beauty
With wealth for every man

Dreamland for the common man
A higher moral plan
Uniting gentleness with wisdom

Utopin words in the modern world
Where hatred and greed makes it work
On the verge to mythology
And we are going to the books of history



Polar White pt1

In to the polar night
And in to the polar white
Many brave men
Had to defy these vast plains
With dreams and hopes
To reach the poles
And put up the nation flag
Was the ultimate goal

They sailed in to the ice
With spirits high and fearless minds
Sometimes snowbound
Sometimes snowblind
Never giving up the fight against the elements
True heroes of our time

Starvation and scurvy
And starlit nights
Roaring frozen winds
And crevasses in the ice
No hope no glory
During endless days of work
Fatigue and gangrene
Allways there allways lurks

They sailed in to the ice
With spirits high and fearless minds
Sometimes snowbound
Sometimes snowblind
Never giving up the fight against the elements
True heroes of our time


The Abyss
Instrumental


Polar White pt2

Arctic explorers like Peary and Scott
Amundsen, Shackleton and Andreé achived a lot
To conquer the frozen world
They had to try something new
Except from sledges and dogs
Even airships, planes and ballons
So many ways
To get lost and be forced to stay

Month in the packice
Month in the snow
Cold winds bites the face
And just nowhere to go
White wastelands takes it's toll
Isolation brings a phsycic load to pull
So many ways
To get lost and be forced to stay

They sailed in to the ice
With spirits high and fearless minds
Sometimes snowbound
Sometimes snowblind
Never giving up the fight against the elements
True heroes of our time


Blood Waters

It's blood in the waters it's blood on our hands
The human predator kills to satiesfy the demands
We want to have our share out of the blue well
But the assets are limited and that's are the wellknown facts
Can we ever bring some sence in this money making turbulence

Red currents
Red sea

They cut of the fins from sharks and leave them to drown
They should cut the hands of greed and just leave them stunned
Coralreef fishermen unaware of the facts
That their poisoness little trade brings more damage than prey
Can we ever build a defence against ravenous opulence

Cold currents
Empty sea

And on the polar ice they hunt the old fashion way
Driving the metal pikes through the seal cub brain
The tuna industry got dolphins by mistake
But treated them just like some kind of waste
Can we ever bring some sence in this money making turbulence

Red currents

Blue Richness

Welcome to blue richness blue richness welcomes you
We're glad to serve the best of what the ocean brings
The seafood special menu veraity you've never seen
You can take much more much more than you ever need

Guaranteed neverending we can experiment with genes
The quality is perfect and so are the industry

Overestimated belif in blue richness bickering about the conferments
Everyone claims the right to take their shares
Even when the hauls gets smaller and fish loose size and weight
They see no end of their business just leave us be

Guaranteed neverending we can experiment with genes
The quality is perfect and so are the industry

Extirpation - Never mentioned
Irritation - Allways tension
No solutions - No conclusions
It's our right so just leave us be

No solutions - No conclusions
It's our right so leave us be


Black sea

In to the dark and cold black waters
The story of fright and the submarine matters
Mr A was chasing the imperial fleet
He's wolfpacks sank the convoys so discreet
Then came the post war red exaggerated dread
When every movement seemed as a possible threat

East and west got caught in a deadly game
Chasing each other like mouses in a great maze
With nuclear missiles outside every coast
On the edge of war the cuban deadly shore so close
So close

Communist fear everyone sees and hears
Pointing you out there's no doubt
Infidel better show and tell
Lie and deny your past
And veer with every with wind


Tidal Wave
Instrumental


Undertow

We have sailed the seas for thousands of years
But still don't know all
With unsinkable ships and new inventional grips
We still come out small

In this technical world so much more to learn
Natures forces are cruel it's easy to lose

We extract gas and oil we sweat and we toil
To fulfill our dreams
For a comfortable life we seek and we strive
To satiesfy our belif

That this monetary chase
Gonna save our day
One third preach the god of greed
And two thirds still bleeds


Swirl
Instrumental


On The North Shore pt 4

Walking here on the north shore
In this warm summer breeze
Reflecting upon these careless things
We've done all this industral years

We take everything for granted
Beliving that all will be fine
But if we walk around blindfolded
We gonna get a scary surprise


Paradise Or What

Is the oilfields inexhaustible no
And our freshwater an endless source

Do we solve all things with modified genes
And feed us with animal clones

Do we trust the nuclear power
That heats all our homes

Is technology reliable
To keep us snug and warm

We drain the oceans resources
We dump our waste in the sea

We test our nuclear weapons
On fragile coral reefs

We introduce new species
In places never seen

If nothings done we loose all we won
From here to eternity
