Track Name: Chesapeake
On board Chesapeake
One thousand eight hundred three and seven
Some added brass on my sheet
I took the charge that begins this saga

Now commanding the fall
Engaged in conflict of royal origin
Lay back let Perry let take all
Avoid the pain with the Caledonia

When Lawrence falls at her feet
While we’re unscathed and undamaged by all of this
And only at his defeat
Will we destroy every inch of her imagining

With a single light in the barren sky I was absolved by your southern eyes

And all the happenings herein
Embittered all involved for two score and counting
The charges, dropped in the end,
Were clearly no indication of calming
