Ties that bind,

Knots that fail or

A screw shaft carved in soap instead of bone

Humankind as the sailor

Embarking without hope of a safe way home



Keep in mind the moon makes paler

What is dark and what is soaked by the sea alone

Humankind as the sailor

Embarking without hope of a safe way home



The size of the storm that is buffeting us

Is absolutely huge and enormously dangerous

We who rescue others,

Lovers, sons and mothers

Now we feel like the orphans ourselves



If we don't keep up the grind,

I will surely fall behind,

Wave after wave

Right into my face

Humankind

Of one mind,

Set adrift to ride the storm
