Metal Church - Rest In Pieces (April 15, 1912)

rate me

[K. Vanderhoof]

Integrity of construction

The best money can buy

Her size is greater than any

A Belfast shipyard's pride

Signal flags spelled out the word "Success"

On her maneuvering trials

Preservers and lifeboats were not in excess

Unsinkable, no plans to save lives

Athinai reports icebergs and field ice

At seven bells ahead just five miles

A black hulk against the night's darkness

Disaster along starboard side

Full speed astern were the orders

It would do them no good

No apparent collision

A rip deep below the waterline

Come at once, we have struck a berg

Interference in transmission

The newest, largest ship afloat

Had two hours to live

Lower all lifeboats, we have too few!

Women and children first!

Distress rockets fill the air

Abandom Ship!"

Sinking faster, every light ablaze

Machinery, engines, crashing to the bow

Arching vertical, stern points to the sky

The great ship fractured

Everyone must die

Watching their families make it to safety

Fifteen hundred went down

The orchestra played to the last moment

An eerie almost unreal sound

The calm and ice North Atlantic

Titanic's burial ground
