A true story. He escaped drowning thanks to the help of the crew of Hellespont Prosperity. This one is a heavy guitar driven anthem.


When I woke up in the morning.
The first thing on my mind.
Was like a dream I had.
Made me fell so alive.
So I went down to the river.
Looking for a sign.
And a ship called Properity.
Came and threw me a line.
Came and threw me a line.

When I was just 16.
The river swallowed me whole.
With the help of a good friend.
I was able to grab ahold.
His arm it was extended.
Reached out like a fishing pole.
He pulled me to safety.
Yes we will talk about when we are old.

Now Im floating, floating on water.
Now I'm flying, flying, flying
flying on time.

He got me to the shoreline
and helped me on my way.
I told myself that I would never forget this day.
So I went back to the river and raised my hands up high
And that ship called Properity
turned and waved goodbye yes it turned and wave good bye

Now Im floating, floating on water.
Now I'm flying, flying, flying
flying on time.

Flying, flying, flying.........
