Oh people, look around you
You've left it for somebody other than you
You're lost inside your houses
Your walls are burning
I'm going to leave you here

Every woman, child and man
But they'll help you if they can
That's going to pull them through somehow
But the sisters of the sun are going

Sister will you soothe my fevered brow
I'll get down to the sea somehow
Oh people, look among you
There's a sea bird above you
We all must do the best we can
When my life is over, I'm going
But the sisters of the sun are going

Sister will you soothe my fevered brow
Maybe I'll remember how
The wind is with me now
I'll get down to the sea somehow
