Then Came Sailing

from by Theatre




The cannon's failed -
We lost our grip on ropes that keep us afloat.
Drop the anchor, so we can raise our hands
And not the flag of mercy.
Man overboard - taken by the bait.
Shoot at will, kill the beast!
Oh Lord; this ocean so great.
Oh Lord; the men so afraid.
Oh Lord; we accept You as the wind in our sails.
Oh Lord; You are my baptist.
Oh Lord; You are my captain.
Remove the hook.
We carry on to the great sea.
Steer the ship - our treasure lies not here.
Fill the ship.
Fill the ship my God...

Theatre was an experimental chaotic hardcore outfit formed in South Africa, in mid-2008, after the expiration of its member’s previous bands. They bring genre-smashing music to the foreground that is both unique in construction and chaotic in design.
