    "The Black Atlantic" Lyrics

    The Stone Coyotes

    The last thing I remember
    Before they brought me in
    Was whispering through trembling lips
    "Take a message to my kin"

    After that the only
    Recollection I have
    Is tracing with my fingertips
    A faded photograph

    I was out on the Black Atlantic
    Clinging to the mast

    (Sails tattered on the mast)
    Praying on the windswept deck
    That this ship is built to last
    Calling, Crying, Shouting out your name

    They say that once you've been there
    You are never quite the same
    My nerves are shot to pieces
    I've been waiting here in vain

    A ghost got in the looking glass
    Who is that I see?
    A shock of recognition
    That poor lost soul is me

    Since that night out on the sea
    No keepsakes do I have
    Just the thought, the dream of you
    And a salt-stained photograph

    Now I walk these paper streets
    And all the buildings sway
    The tides that shift beneath my feet
    Are going to carry me away
