Lyrics
We roam the world
Adrift at sea it seems a thousand years or more
Waves on the shore
Crashing down with vengeance now it's time to explore
What's it all for?
We sailed the seven seas around a thousand times or more
Tighten the boards!
For tomorrow we will beg and steal
And we will fucking borrow once more
We're casting away, no hope for tomorrow
Washed up on the shore, of anger and sorrow
We're drifting no more, this place is my home
We're sailing no more, welcome to Bastard's
We're casting away, no hope for tomorrow
Washed up on the shore, of anger and sorrow
We're drifting no more, this place is my home
We're sailing no more, welcome to Bastard's Bay
We hold the key
For the answers they are buried locked away in you and me
I'm setting myself free
Exploring every option that I'll never live to see
Confliction in me
Beggars and the bastards wait upon the shore for me
So desperately
Dying just to live
And just to say that they are finally free
We're casting away, no hope for tomorrow
Washed up on the shore, of anger and sorrow
We're drifting no more, this place is my home
We're sailing no more, welcome to Bastard's
We're casting away, no hope for tomorrow
Washed up on the shore, of anger and sorrow
We're drifting no more, this place is my home
We're sailing no more, welcome to Bastard's Bay
Bastard's Bay!
Bastard's Bay!
Bastard's Bay!
Welcome to Bastard's Bay!
