about

Inspired by a fisherman who couldn't cope with the rules anymore. He had to sell his boat and started a fish 'n chips shop.
"Het is toch een beetje doodgaan"

lyrics

Cast from the sea they took my bread away
Can’t taste the sea no more
A man of steel and fire now washed ashore
Can’t taste the sea no more

They chained my heart and soul
Chained my boat
But they will never win
They’ll pay for all their
Sins

It's a cradle and grave, fed by sea killed by waves
From the sea to the heart, taste the salt in my veins
Treachery beneath, all the calmness I see
Fight them all tooth and nail, fight them all you will fail

encore

They chained my heart and soul
Chained my boat
They threw me overboard
I’m dying inside and I’ll
DROWN

It is death I tell you it’s death
A fisherman sleeps and dies in his bed
It is death I tell you it’s death
The fire inside me once burning now dead
