Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well, the coal black sea waits for me, me, me
The coal black sea waits forever
The waves hit the shore
Crying more, more, more
But the coal black sea waits forever
Verse 2
The tornados come up the coast; they run
Hurricanes rip the sky forever
Though the weathers change
The sea remains the same
The coal black sea waits forever
Verse 3
There are ashes split through collective guilt
People rest at sea forever
Since they burnt you up
Collect you in a cup
For you the coal black sea has no terror
Verse 4
Will your ashes float like some foreign boat
Or will they sink absorbed forever?
Will the Atlantic coast
Have its final boast?
Nothing else contained you ever
Verse 5
Now the coal black sea waits for me, me, me
The coal black sea waits forever
When I leave this joint
At some further point
The same coal black sea will it be waiting
