Embrace of the Endless Ocean

I stroke the blade with my hand,

The sharp edge cuts the skin.

Blood drips to the rain-wet sand;

My journey can begin.

Once a slave, but now I'm free

My honor is restored!

Once again, I ride the seas

Free at last, from whip and oar

I slide the sword into the sheath

The ocean god is hailed

And as we push out to the sea

We raise the red-striped sails

I've missed the breeze of my home shore

The frozen lakes and winter snow...

But now my dream starts to unfold.

Father, I'm coming home!

The storm came down without remorse

And water crushed the rails

The ship was thrown back and forth

And strong wind ripped the sails

The icy waves embrace my skin,

I am going numb

The endless ocean swallows me

This will be, my cold wet tomb!

Won't feel the breeze of my home shore

Nor see the lakes or winter snow...

My hopeful dreams lie ripped and torn

Father, I die alone, I die alone!
