about

From "A Thrilling Tale of Yester Year" by Strangely & Shay.

lyrics

The water is calling,
The waves are all crashing, just like drums of war!
The naiads are dancing,
To the beat of what lies in store for us!
Oh, what lies in store for us?
And when the time comes,
These walls will fall with the tide!

Call the Kraken, call Leviathan
To the ritual, to the funeral
Call the Kraken, call Leviathan
We'll give this city a burial at sea!
We'll give this city a burial at sea!

The water is rising
It offers no treaty and makes no demands!
The fog is creeping in
To swallow us in silver and cover the land we love!
Oh, what land do we love?
And when the time comes,
These towers will fall with a splash!

Call the Kraken, call Leviathan
To the ritual, to the funeral
Call the Kraken, call Leviathan
We'll give this city a burial at sea!
We'll give this city a burial at sea!

Call the Kraken, call Leviathan
To the ritual, to the funeral
Call the Kraken, call Leviathan
We'll give New Orleans a burial at sea!
We'll give Los Angeles a burial at sea!
We'll give New York City a burial at sea!
We'll give your home a burial at sea!
