This was written for a collab comp on the Muses' Muse. I had to write a lyric involving an ocean voyage, and it had to have this title.

Story behind the song
A quickie lyric written for a collab -- I had to use this title. I had a song fragment from a year or two ago and expanded it. This lyric is a little unsatisfying, but I think Nigel (our first collaboration) did it more than justice.
Lyrics
Watching The boat sail into the night Bobbing Like an olive In an ocean-wide martini This is not the news you expect from a cruise It's more like a film by Fellini And he wonders If there's any chance of getting The deposit back for the wedding As he slowly sinks Into the Devil Sea The sirens are alluring Life slips from its mooring To vistas uncharted Hopes are dashed Choices discarded Life is always outsmarted By the Devil Sea Thinking That his password's set to change Hoping It expires Before she goes into his e-mail He remembers quotes In salacious notes From a certain libidinous female And he wonders If he'd rather drift instead As the waves break over his head And relaxing at last Here in the Devil Sea.... Everyone knows the day the dream sets sails And the day it's blown off course by southern gales Noone has a plan that never fails And the devil's always In the Details Feeling An iota of relief Breathing With a rhythm He knew from zen meditation The world goes pink As he starts to sink And he waves at the friendly crustaceans And he wonders If he'll have a chance of dating Any of the mermaids waiting By a coral reef Under the Devil Sea....etc
