Crimson Red Lyrics

There’s a land

Of cold hearted man

Down under the rising sun

Where evil and bad deeds are done

Where no one hears the cries

 

They use knives

As they finish lives

Of princes and kings of the sea

Who’ve never hurt you or me

As whales and dolphins die

 

As they sing

“Crimson red,

Crimson red,

The sea’s not blue

It’s Crimson red”

 

And they sing,

“Crimson red,

Crimson red,

Whales and dolphins

Are floating dead”

 

There’s no need

It’s just selfish greed

That drives them to kill each time

Their children watch from the shore line

And learn what’s wrong is right

 

It’s so wrong

I say with this song

That man is a primitive beast

For the killing doesn’t cease

It goes on day and night

 

Children sing,

“Crimson red,

Crimson red,

The sea’s not blue

It’s Crimson red”

 

Children sing,

“Crimson red,

Crimson red,

Whales and dolphins

Are floating dead”

 

Whales and dolphins sing and they cry

They feel, they breathe,

They think and die,

At the hands of man,

Who kills everything good,

Why,

I wish I understood

 

We all sing,

“Crimson red,

Crimson red,

The sea’s not blue

It’s Crimson red”

 

And I sing,

“Crimson red,

Crimson red,

Can’t get that scene,

Out of my head”

 

“Crimson red,

Crimson red,

The sea’s not blue

It’s Crimson red”

“Crimson red,

Crimson red,

Can’t get that scene,

Out of my head”
