I think it's awesome! I wanna hear your story! What do you do for work on the ship? What's it like, basically living on a ship? I guess a lot of it is described in the song, but I can see how it would get depressing and repetitive.
Also, think you could upload a version of the song with no vocals? Not that there's anything wrong with them, they kick arse, just would cater better to all us flash artists out there looking for some awesome music to fit into an action part of an animation.
I'll check your reply. :)
Anyone who wants an instrumental version just has to send me a PM... Ill have one up in no time :-D
I'm a shipmechanic for a large german shipping company. I work on those HUGE ships, (300 metres +). The shipmechanic is an allrounder... I have lots to do in the nautical area (Steering the ship on maneuvers, driving the winches while berthing, working with the atlas lines etc. etc.) but also have a lot to do in the engine room...
We have 12 cylinder engines with around 100 000 horsepower. Its BIG. THe engine room is always hot, lots of oil and grease and i work around 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Sometimes during the night, if I'm on deckwatch or engine room watch...
Its a great job, i see a lot, but sometimes you just get a bad crew, or there's some big asshole amongst them... and the whole voyage is ruined. That's what this song is about :)
