We'll hoist a hand, becalmed upon a troubled sea 
'Make haste to your funeral,' cries the Valkyrie 
We'll hoist a hand or drown amidst this stormy sea 
'Here lies a coffin,' cries the cemetery, it calls to me 
And all for nothing quite in vain was hope forever tossed 
No thoughts explained, no moments gained, all hope forever lost 
One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace 
Burnt by fire, blind in sight, lost in ire 

We'll hoist a hand, becalmed upon a troubled sea 
I fear a mighty wave is threatening me 
We'll hoist a hand, or drown amidst this stormy sea 
'Come follow after,' cry the humble, 'You will surely see ...' 
But still for nothing quite in vain was hope forever tossed 
No moments gained, no thoughts explained, all hope forever lost 
One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace 
Burnt by fire, blind in sight, lost in ire
