about

As the chaotic feelings of mutiny fade away, our protagonist garbage settles into another soul-searching melancholy. Sachal Vasandani leads us here, and Ryan Scott plays the guitar solo.

lyrics

We’re sinking
We’re stinking
We’re rotting
We drift along
From port to port, we're lost at sea
Oh
Oh
Where to now?
What's left for us?
Friendless, alone
Bales of bone
Oh-oh-oh
Oh.

Collected
Infected
Rejected
They twist their heads
And close their hearts
Cowering
Oh
Oh
Pariahs
In this cruel world
Thrown out, despised
Far from home
Oh-oh-oh
Oh.

Where's your mercy
Your compassion
Here in filth we lie
Sick and hungry
Tossed asunder
How long till we die?

No seconds
No minutes
No hours
Time withers
And turns to dust
So weary
Oh
Oh
The days drip
They melt away
Sleep never comes
Only night
Oh-oh-oh
Oh.
