about

A raw, atmospheric, drone metal epic dedicated to the wonderful micronation of Sealand. A nation born of abandonment and baptized by gunfire, Sealand holds strong in the hearts of many due to it's perseverance in the face of solitude and the strength to take the brunt of any storm . This album goes out to Sealand, Prince Michael and all his many Lords and Ladies, Barons and Baronesses, and all who hold Sealand dear.

Alone
In the ocean
He stands
not a motion
The tides
erode him
The times
forgot him

His guns
are all rusted
His king
has fallen
his men
have left him
The times
forgot him

And he falls
Beneath the water

In the deep
no one knows him
while he sleeps
beneath the ocean
watch the sky
flying over him
No more air
The water takes him

The lord is dead
the people praise him
Once he is gone
The people praise him
In time
they erase him
In time
they'll replace him

And he falls
Beneath the water
