Hunting The Great White

from by Bats & Battleships



There's nothing more in sight
There's nothing more I can see
Even in the dreams I had
When I knew not of this beast

Only the fire in your eyes
And my future drowned at sea

I've navigated this sinking ship
Across the globe for the fourth time
Each time around I've battled you
Sometimes being victorious
But this time, I've been waiting
I have prepared myself
I'm going to encounter you, one last time
Baiting you with precious words
And feelings of security
Wearing you down, drawing me in
Closer, closer.
It lends itself to the launching of harpoons
It sticks in your neck marked as a passionate kiss
So throw cross this net
Disguised as a warm embrace

Then it pulls away
Flailing violently across the ocean
Ripping me clean off my ship, sinking ship behind me
Holding on for dear life as it pulls me into the deep

I go back to the one I almost caught.
