Heave ho, Atticus
This ship's almost ashore
And the waves, they seem so mad at us
And I don't know what for

Good man, Tobias
Go up and trim the sail
There's few riches for the pious
No option here to fail

Oh, I see it rising
I see it rising
I see it rising

Well hold on, Mary
In the winter I'll be home
Oh, god forbid this ship of mine
Don't splinter on the stone

Hold on, lover
It'll only be awhile
'Til you and I discover
Softer swells and one another

Oh, I see it rising
I see it rising
I see it rising

Hold fast, Elijah
The bow is bound to break
Take that devil down inside ya
And try to pray, for heaven's sake

Well I see it rising
I see it rising
I see it rising
