LyricsEdit

There is a place, out past the mazes,

And lying there, a shipwright's bones.

By his side, his argent compass,

And by his feet there is a pale grey stone,

Lying by his feet there is a pale, grey stone.

Ink and pen, are by his surcoat,

Although they found no written farewell.

He died on a night that was cold as his family,

Oh it was icy at the gates of hell,

Surprised that it was icy at the gates of hell.


Fare thee well, great uncle Franklyn,

When the snowflakes fall, I will play your tune.

And when I think of how you left this world,

I will remember how the world left you.


They say he fell for a Volantine maiden,

Who was more lovely than mere words can tell.

And he lay in her arms, and he bathed in the moonlight,

and sweetly sung of the Spicefield Sept bell.

He sang to the maiden of the Spicefield Sept bell.


Fare thee well, brave uncle Franklyn,

When the snowflakes fall, I will play your tune.

And when I think of how you left this world,

I will remember how the world left you.


Who amongst us would still say,

'I'll not forgive until my dying day.'

Between the earth, and the stars above,

There still is no godly seam of love.


Summon up the drums of the Western Shipyard,

Blind Matthos and Howd's twins too.

We'll sing it out from the Overgate to High Tide.

We'll place a coal upon the fire for you.

We'll place a precious coal upon the fire for you.


Fare thee well, brave uncle Franklyn,

When the snowflakes fall, I will play your tune.

And when I think of how you left this world,

I will remember how the world left you.
