lyrics

Seaman’s blues

Seaman’s blues
In doing time
You get only to lose
For some unknown crime

Into this ship
Into this lively tomb
Your pride is cheap
It lies in time’s womb

Get dressed in blue
Get dressed in white
Forget it’s you
Forget your own sight
Forget the light

Here you got no
View of your own
Yes, it is so
No use to moan

For some religion
You don’t believe in
And for some region
You don’t wanna live in

Get dressed in blue…

For them to higher
Weapon’s demand
And for some filthy liar
Who’s got the upper hand

You gonna waste
Your most precious years
You gonna taste
Dust and swallowed tears

Get dressed in blue…

Just a number’s all you gonna be
1, 8, 3, 7 and 3
