​Just A Nautic Tale

This song is by Stygma IV and appears on the album Solum Mente Infirmis... (1998).

Deep within the endless blueI see a silhouetteThe eminence of the seaHe is on his trail to his forseen destiny towards theArctic seaHis reign was silentSo mankind couldn't hearHe kept the oceansAnd could defend his kingdom till men appeared theySailed the oceansIn greed for landThey invented weaponsTo hunt the whaleThe sea was bleedingAnd turned to redOur search for profitWouldn't come to an end
It's hard to comprehendWhy they killed the whaleThey didn't need his meatTo survive their bitter ageThey didn't need his oilTo warm them in the coldThe extinction of the whaleIs just a nautic tale
On his journey to his chosen fateDreaming of the timeHe didn't spend in solitudeHe feels the illnessHe won't surviveWhen he'll be deadThe oceans will die... why?

'Cause he's the last whaleThe last whaleThe last whaleThe last of his kind
It's hard to comprehendWhy they still kill the whaleWe don't need his meatTo survive our bitter ageWe don't need his oil to warm us in the coldThe extinction of the whaleIs just a nautic tale
Now whaling ships appearAnd he won't escape themThe sea pouring out anguish and fearThe ocean winds get stormyTheir deadly harpoon hits his rearBut he can tear the lineHe's diving deep down the oceanTo rest in peace
DrowningDrowningDrowning
The sea is bleedingAnd it turns to redIts chain reaction will be our end
I cannot comprehendWhy they've killed the whalesThey've never needed the meatTo survive their ruthless ageThey've neither needed the oilTo warm them in the coldThe killing of the whaleIs just a nautic tale
As I realise what I've seen on my silverscreenI feel pain deep withinHow can men be so cruelAt last we're just the foolsWe don't know what we lose
In our destroying game we've always been playing
