lyrics

sailing south from rotterdam
with a cargo for mannheim
they fought the wind
and downstream flow
on the waters of the rhine

in cologne to stay the night
the stories were passed around
luckless tales of
men that were lost-
their end was borne in the sound

the waters hold the secret
and wash the truth away

LORELEI-
HER MYTH WAS ON THE MINDS
OF THOSE WHO PASSED BELOW THE CLIFFS
THAT FRAMED THE RIVER RHINE
LORELEI-
SHE WAS CASTING OUT HER SPELL
CALLING WORSHIPPERS TO HER FEET
TO DRIVE THEM ALL TO HELL

one last stop in koblenz
the boatmen drank to forget
the look of fear
was in their eyes
they had to make the passage yet

the waters share with no one
the answers they retain

mannheim was a day away
through the gorge and slate mountains
off the cliffs her
call was resounding
and there the journey did end

LORELEI-
SHE STOLE MY SON FROM ME
DASHED HIS SHIP IN THE MISTY NIGHT
WASHED HIS SOUL OUT TO SEA
LORELEI-
THE FURY WAS HER SONG
MAGIC VEILED A DEADLY HYMN
THE STRONGEST MEN WEREN'T SO STRONG
