Into the Abstract (Titanic My Past Life)

Titanic (my past life)
 
A few hours ago dancing and singing a ditty,
music and laughter all Irish and pretty;
seems far off now as I run for my life,
corridors are flooded, panic is rife.
I was in third class, I’m just not priority,
there’re not enough lifeboats to seat the majority:
there’s shouting and panic as the ship starts to sink;
I’m cold and afraid as it tips in the drink;
the lights all go out, I hang onto life and cry,
I’m only 33, I don’t wanna die;
then I’m plunged into the waters icy depths,
underwater now, I hold my breath,
hanging on for dear life I surface again:
a sea full of people, freezing, in pain;
the lifeboats move away,
they care not for our health,
they’re ok Jack, it’s every man for himself;
eerie and silent, the cold cuts like a knife
as we gradually lose the battle to hold onto our life,
‘will I be remembered,’ as I take my last breath,
and slowly I sink into the waters icy cold depths.
