"O to be upon the sea
Beyond this race of fools
Repair the damage heal the pain
Revisit memory’s pools

This race we run begins at birth
And ends within our graves
I need to stop and find some peace
And rest upon the waves

Great winds speak softly to my sails
For I am at your will
Take up the tiller plot my course
Whilst I my strength refill
