The Last Leviathan
by The Fisherman's Friends

Last night I heard the cry, of my last companion
Then came a blast from a harpoon gun
And I swam alone
I reflected on days gone by, when we were thousands
Now I know I soon must die
The last leviathan

My soul has been torn from me and I am bleeding
My heart it has been ripped and I am crying
As the beauty around me fails and I am screaming
I am the last of the great whales and I am dying

This morning the sun did rise, in a crimson north sky
The ice was the colour of blood and I heard the wind sigh
I rose up to take a breath, it was my last one
From a gun came the roar of death and now I'm undone

My soul has been torn from me and I am bleeding
My heart it has been ripped and I am crying
As the beauty around me fails and I am screaming
I am the last of the great whales and I am dying

And now that we all are gone, there will be no more hunting
The big fellow is no more and there's no use lamenting
What race will be next in line, all for the slaughter
The elephant or the seal or your sons or daughters?

My soul has been torn from me and I am bleeding
My heart it has been ripped and I am crying
As the beauty around me fails and I am screaming
I am the last of the great whales and I am dying
