An Ocean and Peril

I have neither food, nor water
I have neither pain, nor medicine
I can neither dream, nor sleep
I am in this blighted place
And, I am haunted by an ocean that beckons me
I hear its siren song of oblivion
And within contained: a sad and wonderful plea
Of eerie depths and cool embrace
I am in this blighted place
And, I am haunted by an ocean that beckons me 


from The Black Atlantic - Reverence for Fallen Trees (2009), released August 21, 2009
Music & lyrics by Geert van der Velde
