about

The storm dies. The Lighthouse is out. A figure swims towards the island but without the lighthouse they cannot find the shore. Our young man watches from the lighthouse for the figure out at sea is not him. Watching the flailing figure lose their way our young man, sea-changed and heart-hardened sings that he will keep the lighthouse dark. No-one else shall come or go driven by the fickle whim of love. Everything is lost - no hope, no light, no love. There's no such thing as a soul to save.

lyrics

Midnight in the ocean the lights of land are flickering just in sight
You're splashing, praying, begging like a dog out there on your own tonight
There used to be a lighthouse here
I took care of that
Midnight in the ocean man you'd best be turning back

I can't let you spread your lies around here
Everybody knows there is nothing beyond the waves
I already brought salvation
There is not a soul to save

Midnight in the ocean the lights of land are nowhere in sight
You're splashing, praying, dying like a dog out there all at sea tonight
There never was a lighthouse here
we'd all swear to that
Midnight in the ocean and there ain't no turning back

I can't let you spread your lies around here
Everybody knows there is nothing beyond the waves
I already brought salvation
There is not a soul to save...
