The Lonely Sea (Wyrd)

The sun sets below the foam of the ocean And the shore is fast asleep I stood on the mountain and sang When my verses hit the water they were already dead I know where the sun sleeps at night Down in the lonely sea I know where the sun hides at night Up a tall spruce-tree The song vanished behind the pine-trees And the dusk cried it away Below the depths of the ever storming sea My song of something that will never return I know where the sun sleeps at night Down in the lonely sea I know where the sun hides at night Up a tall spruce-tree Struck by your words like stones The grief comes like winters cold, cutting breath I want to turn the sun and the moon from their paths And press the countless stars in my fist I shall curse this world Turn back the sun Turn back the moon I shall curse this world Turn back the day Turn back the night And when I have trampled it all underfoot Smiling I'll turn my back on life I know where I'll sleep tonight Down in the lonely sea And when the dawn has blown upon it's fire I'll rest deep below the depressing sea.
