18 Minutes Down

from by Mickey Rickshaw

lyrics

They hit the starboard bow.
We're taking water now.
The vessel's going down.
The sharks are circled 'round.

An engine, an order, a trigger, a boarder.
A U-20 with a thirst for blood
Faster than a liner's scud

They hit the starboard bow.
We're taking water now.
The vessel's going down.
The sharks are circled 'round.
An engine, an order, a trigger, a boarder.
With SOS in sound, 18 minutes down!

Over one thousand good men and women
were taken to the bottom of the sea.
Over a million good civilians
could only watch from the shore and count the casualties.
An engine, an order, a trigger, a boarder.
They sunk em just to watch em drown
Sunk em just to make a sound.
The Kaiser was knocking,
the whole world was watching.
One trigger brought the world to war,
1915 what was it for?!
