Patty Larkin The Last Leviathan Lyrics

Last updated: 08/23/2012 09:16:19 AM

The Last Leviathan
words and music by Andy Barnes
instrumental prelude by Patty Larkin
My soul has been torn from me, and I am bleeding
My heart it has been wrent, and I am crying
As the beauty around me fails, and I am screaming
I'm the last of the great whales
And I am dying

Last night I heard the call of my last companions
The blast of a harpoon gun, and I swam alone
I reflected on days gone by, when we were thousands,
And I know that I soon must die
The Last Leviathan

This morning the sun did rise in a crimson north sky
The ice was the color of blood, and I heard the wind sigh
I rose up to take a breath, it was my last one
From a gun came the roar of death
and now I'm undone

My soul has been torn from me, and I am bleeding
My heart it has been wrent, and I am crying
As the beauty around me fails and I am screaming
I'm the last of the great whales,
And I am dying

And now that we are all gone, there'll be no more hunting
The big fellow is no more, and it's no use lamenting
What race will be next in line all for the slaughter
The elephant or the seal
Or your sons and daughters

My soul has been torn from me, and I am bleeding
My heart it has been wrent and I am crying
As the beauty around me fails and I am screaming
I am the last of the great whales,
and I am dying.
