Signy Mallory - Finity's End 13

Feat. Leslie Fish

She's captain of the Norway, a thorn in Union's side
Protector of Pell Station, and a source of grudging pride
Left the Mazianni with their price upon her head
And stayed to guard the stations that the Company left for dead

Chorus:
Captain Signy Mallory has no soul, they say
The captain of the Norway has a heart of frozen clay
That on the bridge of the Norway she throws men's lives like dice;
Captain Signy Mallory, her eyes are fire and ice
They say she doesn't think about the lives that shе has lost;
They say when Norway goes to fight, shе doesn't count the cost
That once she's planned a course she never reckons wrong or right;
So why does she stare sleeplessly into the dark all night?

Chorus:
Captain Signy Mallory has no soul, they say
The captain of the Norway has a heart of frozen clay
That on the bridge of the Norway she throws men's lives like dice;
Captain Signy Mallory, her eyes are fire and ice

They say for Norway's captain, discipline's an iron whip;
It's worth your life to break her rules in dock or on the ship
That no one sane serves under her command, but if that's so
Then why do her troops cheer her when she passes them below?

Chorus:
Captain Signy Mallory has no soul, they say
The captain of the Norway has a heart of frozen clay
That on the bridge of the Norway she throws men's lives like dice;
Captain Signy Mallory, her eyes are fire and ice

They say the captain has no crude emotions to control
Just iron fist and iron will and iron-banded soul
They say she shows no mercy and they say she never can
So why is Norway refuge for a burned-out Union man?
Chorus:
Captain Signy Mallory has no soul, they say
The captain of the Norway has a heart of frozen clay
That on the bridge of the Norway she throws men's lives like dice;
Captain Signy Mallory, her eyes are fire and ice

She's captain of the Norway, a thorn in Union's side;
The Mazianni fear her; she's the heart of Norway's pride
And Stationer or Merchanter from Fargone back to Pell
Know for Mallory all Norway would fight demons out of hell
