When Shipwrecked Sailors gnaw on uncooked meat,
And foreign winds distort the mind to know all others but itself
Would you give your teeth to save your flesh?

With a mouth too sore for smiles,
washed all stinging by the salt of the sea,
Could you find the will to whisper words of love upon the waves?

When tree beneath your feet incinerates away,
Below the dark abyss, where shadows circle in the mirror of the sky,
Would you sell your soul, for the justice of the right to breathe?
