It's been a long time since I first heard this song,

And since then I've been wondering and wandering.

I've been sailing.

I've sailed on a sea of despair.

I just wanted to see.

To see when we live and when we die,

To witness the beauty of those who dance with their own death

While still being alive.

I've met sailors and I've met pirates,

I've met angels and I've met devils,

They all sang in unison this song of death yearning for life.

I've been sailing on a sea of despair,

Because I wanted to fathom the pain of all men.

I've been making my way, on the way of all flesh.

I've followed my own light in a world pitch black

And the morning star led me ashore

Where the birds are singing this same old chant.
