“Those who dream by day are cognisant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
-Edgar Allan Poe


Oh, have pity, mother of the sea!
Unleash your roiling waves on us
Release your fierce animals
Free your captive souls
Return them to our land
For we do not know
 
Oh, have pity, mother of the sea!
Hurt us with your incessant punches
Free yourself from our
Grasp
For we do not know
 
Oh, mother of the sea!
Forgive us for what we have done
For we know we will not escape with
Impunity
