This song is by Oceansize and appears on the album Frames (2007).

Periscope extends the lens
Veiney hands can't mend
Your broken little babies remains
We all fall to bits just the same

Eyes down for a full house
Yeah, I love you long time
They christened me
Just to give me name
Now I know that I'm to blame

There was no man in his eyes
And no lights to beam home those ships
Can't even extend out his arm
To go and cash in his chips
I wish that I could not so rightly place this

But least I can say that I was there
That I witnessed his demise
But you my lucky son
Because of your size
You would not remember

This has sent your only son
To an early grave
What you thought was an accident
Was deliberate

There was a twitch in his hand
As I offered him mine
But our captain only cared about his crew
But you would not remember, would you?

And when that time does come, my brother
And I should offer you my hand
You'll know just what to do
What not to put me through
You must remember

Come your expiration
Come your sell by date
And there is no companion
It'll be too late

All this misfortune is punishment
He sings of gods that desert him
He falls again but undeterred
He hides from the light
