He climbed onto the ship, to die on the sea To cast himself adrift, to find truer peace He heard the bugle blow, he watched the land recede The sunset's aching glow He left the sky to bleed And as he went below, he thought he heard Alongside the bell, a whispered word He dreamt of finding warm elixir of release As the moon shone on the sails The servant boy grew ever pale 'Eight days awake and all I see White tongues of sirens calling me' The table set, the glasses clean We drink to sail, we drink to dream As they fainted one by one The sails were blinded by the sun

I of everyears Recall the fallen footsteps Of those reaching for the stars Whether he recalled the blazing sun Wherefore does he hold the sky's falling tears For when it rains He's standing here with me Our bare feet upon the ground Springs now turned to dust No longer green dried out naked trees The parched earth waits to bud
10.
When other people say you're someone to misuse Shut in behind your young girl's face And helpless in your bed of thorns I'll remember who you are Yes, I'll remember who you are I'll remember who you are A young girl, unchained Come back here now I know you're somewhere still alive Strong behind your young girl's tears I know you're somewhere, unchanged Oh, I remember who you are Yes, I remember who you are I remember who you are A young girl, unchained There stands a young girl, naked In her innocence unused And she holds me in her small hand And she smiles down on me I am innocent in her dark eyes I will lose my heart in the sand You're cruel, but you're good for me And you hold me in your young girl's hand I remember who you are Yes, I remember who you are I remember who you are A young girl, unchained
