Lyrics

Father O’Brien
What do you say Jackie? Are you with us?

Jackie
Did you ever wake up from a nightmare so deep
Where you’re drowning in 17 fathoms of sleep?
And you swim to the surface and you’re gasping for breath
But you’re back for a reason, for a bargain with death.

Yes, it’s one final contract, it’s one final task,
But she’s asking a question no one’s bothered to ask,
For what are we men without a ship to complete?
Unless we’re snatching some hope from those jaws of defeat?

For this is our moment,
This is our grail,
This is our Everest,
Our mountain to scale.
Why it’s a battle we’re fighting,
And we have to prevail,
We’ll take back the shipyard or we’ll

Men
End up in jail

Company
When the last ship sails.

Jackie
Oh the roar of the chains and the cracking of timbers,
The noise at the end of the world in your ears,

As a mountain of steel,
Makes its way to the sea,
And the

Company
Last ship sails.

Jackie
And whatever you’d promised,
Whatever you’ve done,
And whatever
The station
In life you’ve become,

Jackie & Father O’Brien
In the name of the Father,
In the name of the Son,

Jackie, Father O’Brien & Peggy
And no matter the weave of this life that you’ve spun,
On the

Company
Earth or in Heaven or under the sun,
When the last ship sails.

Oh the roar of the chains (roar of the)
And the cracking
Of timbers,
The noise at the end of
The world in your ears,
As a mountain of steel makes its way to the sea
And the last ship sails.
When the last ship sails.
