The Battle of Hampton Roads (14:02)

According to the Battle of Hampton Roads Songfacts, The Battle of Hampton Roads was arguably most important naval battle of the American Civil War from the standpoint of the development of navies, its major significance being that it was the first meeting in combat of ironclad warships. Both sides claimed victory but present-day historians agree that the result was victory for neither.

Tonight two great ships will pull back to their ports
Depleted of everything that shoots flames and reports
And in the morning the shells will wash up on the shore
And the mighty of Earth will have no other recourse

  • The end feels so victorious even though I barely survived the album
  • This is the best song ever
  • This song makes me want to star the entire album over again.
  • As amazing as the first time I heard it.
  • I honestly think this is the greatest closing track ever
  • And so now when I drink I'm going to drink to excess And when I smoke I will smoke gaping holes in my chest And when I scream I will scream until I'm gasping for breath And when I get sick I will stay sick for the rest!!
  • how could you go 24 hours without listening to this
  • please don't ever leave
  • they closed the live show with this fantastic!
  • this song is so very amazing and a half
