Ship’s bell,
sing me out to see;
a lyre eulogy.

Ship’s bell
what have I done wrong?
To sing you this song?

Slow down
I can't catch my breath.

Sorry is not good enough;
it was never enough.

There's no stone
heavy enough,
to bring this Woolf down,
to take this Woolf down.

The guilty
will roll on the shore,
in fanfare and gold,
in fanfare and gold.

I take
the quiet way out,
no scream and no shout;
out the back door.

Blood runs
faster than you,
I guess now we're through…

but don't you
remember that time?
With your palm in mine?

The let go;
and now here’s the fall.
You've murdered us all.
you’ve murdered us all.

Ship’s bell,
the dead are at sea.
You led them to me.
Why’d you lead them to me?

and sorry
is not good enough.
It was never enough
I was never in love
I was never enough
we were never in love.
