So hold fast, and don’t mind us old ghosts.
You’ve got years left of light and warm blood in your bones.
So hold fast, and don’t mind us old ghosts.

A deafening bang wakes me in the night; the pumps have failed again.
Light fills the crack around my door and a figure enters the cabin.

You heard this place is cursed, but trust us we’re the worst.
And we just want to pass on our tale.

The North all warned us don’t come up here; just let that dead ship lie
I can’t believe I came all this way just to freeze my bones and die.

Yes, we sought fame and fortune too; we left our families behind.
We loaded up our ships and set for the North; a bold new path to try.

With Erebus at her side, the Terror could never die.
But our hubris overcame us and this is where we lie.

The Northwest Passage in his sights, the captain only had our lives to spend
But before we’d thought to mutiny, we would never see light again
