This song was created for Game of Bands round 202 : "The Sea"

Lyrics:

[0:00-0:19] Intro (Bar 1-16)

[0:19-0:57] VERSE 1 (Bar 17-48)
Swir-ling sands
Tumbling
Deep beneath the roar

Cling-ing hands
Plummeting
Sink and rise once more

[0:57-1:16] PRECHORUS (Bar 49-64) [would have to sing double time to fit timing here, this is half the length of verse 1]
Throbbing lights
Tempt you to
Join in their embrace

Twisted masks
Laugh and cry
Hiding their true face?

[1:16-1:55] VERSE 2 (Bar 65-96)
How - can - you,
Take from me
More - than - air?

Glowing eyes,
Scales and gills,
Dare to suck me in

[1:55-2:14] Prechorus 2 (Bar 97-112)
Trust me now,
You have been locked
Inside this spell

Beasts and fins
Ask you to redefine
Your hell

[2:14-2:33] CHORUS (Bar 113-128)
Nautical waltz!
Curs’d Masquerade!
Taake this faate from
Me

Torrent of whirls
A flurry of heat
Beneath this wretched
Seeaaa (wretched sea)

[2:33-2:52] Instrumental Break (Bar 129- 144)

[2:52-3:31] VERSE 3 (Bar 145- 176)
Nac-re-ous - pearls,
-
Lips that ooze and bulge

(in double-time)
Teeth upon bones,
Suckers and cones,
March as they indulge

[3:31-3:50] Prechorus 3 (Bar 177-192)
Will - you - dance?
Spin with me,
Come and take a dip...

Fate or chance?
Rushing by,
Pull you by the hip

[3:50-4:28] CHORUS (Bar 193- 224) sing full chorus two times
Nautical waltz!
Curs’d Masquerade!
Taake this faate from
Meeeeee

Torrent of whirls
A flurry of heat
Beneath this wretched
Seeaaa (wretched sea)

==
Nautical waltz!
Curs’d Masquerade!
Taake this faate from
Meeeeee

Torrent of whirls
A passionate heat
Within this cold dark sea...


[4:28-5:07] Bridge (Bar 225- 256)
Opulent Courtship
A ghastly romance
With beasts beyond the pale

Breaking and splashing
And killing and crashing
As each of us slave to the beat!


[5:07-5:27]FINAL CHORUS (Bar 257- end)
Nautical waltz!
Curs’d Masquerade!
Taake this faate from
Meeeeee

Torrent of whirls
A flurry of heat
Beneath this wretched
Seeaaa (wretched sea)
