A ship is setting course to sea
She's carried by the wind
A voyage unto mystery
Once harbour lights have dimmed

A valiant toy of the waves and the tide
Sails in the night

The sea has many tales to tell
Of all the sunken ships
But trident hearts conceal them well
Where man will have no grip

Laughing at legends the crew shows no fear
Though fate is near

The waves have taken what was theirs
Ships went down, but no one cares
So many sailors lay buried in the deep
They'll no longer weep
Have mercy on me
Don't let the sea
Swallow my life
Swallow my life

They see the angry rollers that
Are reaching up so high
Her crew has gone, her sails are red
The phantomship still flies

On violent waves that are looming ahead
Omen of death

The harsh and unbelieving crew
Suddenly realized all was true
Just like the men who were buried in the deep
They started to weep
Have mercy on me
Don't let the sea
Swallow my life
Swallow my life
Swallow my life

Million anonymous were drowned
Taken down
Into the realm of Neptune
See how she weathers every gale
In full sail
Doomed were the ships that came in sight
Of the Phantom of the Night
Of the Phantom of the Night
Of the Phantom of the Night
