    When I stand and look
    About the port
    And contemplate my life, will I
    Ever see my countrymen again?
    As the captain calls us on the deck
    I take my things and walk
    To the harbourside, I glance back
    One last time.

    Fleeing our nation, our problems
    We leave behind.
    Ships by the tenfold sail
    Out on the tide.
    We are pleased to be out and
    Embracing the open sea.
    Free from our troubles
    And more free from thee.

    Inheritors unfulfilled reason
    Behind us.
    We flee from what is not what
    Is will be.
    We flee the earth and face our
    Harsh reality.
    Will death be low mist that
    Hangs on the sea?

    We run from the evil tongues, rash
    Judgements, selfish men
    Never to be seen on these
    Shores again.

    As we sail into oceansize
    And lose sight of all land
    A face of contentment
    Around in the air.
    We're off now to
    Seek all our fortunes.
    To the land of our dreams.

    Riding the waves and the storm
    Is upon us.
    The winds lash the sails but
    The ropes keep them tight.
    Off in the distance a dark cloud
    None could imagine what there
    Was to come.
    No, there's no one going back.
    No, there's not a second chance.
    As we strap onto the side
    We pray to God that we don't die.

    As we ride the rough seas,
    As we soak from the ocean waves,
    I just hope for all our lives
    And pray that I survive.

    Four ships are lost in the
    Stormy conditions.

    The spirits of the sunken crews,
    Their phantoms follow us.

    Spirits, sails, they drive us on
    Through the all consuming waves.
    Cold mortality, no weapon
    Against these ever raging seas.

    Four leagues and ten and we
    Hit storms again.
    We just can't get away from
    The eye of the storm.

    The birds outsoar the raging storm
    But we cannot escape it.
    Abandoned earth that we
    Now crave
    Is many leagues from safe.

    Holding on for our dear lives
    And we're praying once again.
    Rotten luck or just jonahed?
    The talisman is in my hand.

    Limbs fatigues, trembling with cold.
    Blinded from the sea spray salt.
    Clasping anything we can hold.
    Heave's rain upon us falls.

    Twenty days without a meal
    And ten without fresh water still.
    Those that didn't die in storms
    The scurvy rest did slaughter.

    Westwards the tide.
    Westwards we sail on.
    Westwards the tide.
    Sail by the talisman.

    We approach the other side
    Of the ocean with the tide
    In our favour just for once.
    Welcome greeting, our new land.
    The elation in our hearts,
    The excitement in our veins
    As we sail towards the coastline
    Of our golden promised land.

    Weary limbs fatigued away.
    I have no life left in me.
    No more strength and nothing
    Left to give.
    Must find the will to live.

    Never thought that we could
    Make it.
    Truly sight of shores divine.
    The sickness I am dying from.
    Never wanted it to end this way.

    Westwards the tide.
    Westwards we sail on.
    Westwards the tide.
    Sail by the talisman.
