The Last Ship (Part Two) lyrics

Sting

Father O'Brien:
So what do you say, Jack? Are you with us?

Jackie:
Do you ever wake up from a nightmare so deep
Where you're drowning in 17 fathoms of sleep?
And you swim to the surface and you're gasping for breath
But you're back for a reason, for a bargain with death
It's just one final contract, one final task
But he's asking a question no one's bothered to ask
What are we men without a ship to complete?
Unless we're snatching some hope from those jaws of defeat

So this is our moment, this is our grail
This is our Everest, our mountain to scale
Why, it's a battle we're fighting
We have to prevail
We'll take back the shipyard
Or we'll end up in jail
When the last ship sails

Oh the roar of the chains
And the cracking of timbers
The noise at the end of the world in your ears
As a mountain of steel makes its way to the sea
And the last ship sails

And whatever you'd promised
Whatever you've done
And whatever the station of life you've become
In the name of the father, in the name of the son
And no matter the weave of this life that you've spun
On the earth or in heaven or under the sun
When the last ship sails
Oh the roar of a chains and the cracking of timbers
The noise at the end of the world in your ears
As a mountain of steel makes its way to the sea
And the last ship sails
When the last ship sails
