Ghost of the Ocean (Uriah Heep)

A ghost of the ocean Tells of the women of the sea They ran from oppression In the forgotten history No innocents No leader to defend No god, no government And it's hard to believe They were riders on the sea Women of fortune Always to be prepared to die Blood on the knife edge Flag of the sea lord flying high A world of action strong and free Adventure war and loyalty The mermaid tyrant loved to fight She ties the noose and pulls it tight Treacherous island Somewhere to hide on no man's land Ships in the harbour Waiting to hear the battle plan
