On my royal black cutter, I have taken command
Pointed port to the edge and I've struck up the band
Playing "Nearer My God" for the men who believe
The refrain will continue o'er the edge of the sea

And when I finally land in that sinking abyss
And I've seen my men's faces in every port that there is
No, the ocean won't move me, it's so blue and so plain
How it sucks up the sunset, spits it right out again

Sometimes I feel like I've read every word
Like there's no new idea, no new song to be heard
On that great day of judgment when our heads will all roll
A king can't but notice: I've seen one, I've seen all

There's no warmth in the sunlight, there's no peak in the sex
There's no heart in the darkness, there's no joy in the jest
There's no light in the fire, there's no rush in the wind
There's no touch to the feeling, there's no point in the end

There's no point in the end...
