Square-Rigger

 

 

 

Cenotaph

Perdition: eternal damnation
Leviathan: Bible-sea monster, whale
Cenotaph: monument honoring a soul whose remains are elsewhere

 

The Ocean Breathe

 

Breathe Deep the Ocean Breathe
Breathe Deep the Ocean Breathe

Square rigger out of New Bedford
Bound for perdition on the ocean sea
A man aloft stays alert on watch
There she blows on the larboard side
The captain shouts, the whaleboats lower
The crew give chase, the harpooner stands up.
Dead leviathan beside the ship,
Down below the crew try to sleep,
Above the thrashing of the sharks,
Outside the hull, on the ocean sea.

Breathe Deep the Ocean Breathe
Breathe Deep the Ocean Breathe

On Johnny Cake Hill back in New Bedford
There’s a cenotaph on the wall in Bethel’s chapel
Black chisel marks in the white marble
Tell the names of the crew on the Acushnet
Near Sable Island off Nova Scotia
Towed out of sight in their boat by a whale
Wild horses roaming free on Sable Island
And down below on the rocky beach
The crashing waves of the sea
The ocean sea, the ocean sea

Breathe Deep the Ocean Breathe
Breathe Deep the Ocean Breathe
