Churning waters
Black as coal
Rocking back and fourth
Back and fourth
In the holds endless rocking
Endless dripping
Dripping is the only sound
Drip
Drip
Drip
Eyes
Trying to pierce
The impenetrable darkness
Nothing can be seen
Only black
Just endless rocking
And dripping
Drip
Drip
Drip
The old creaking ship
Enveloped in dark night
Slowly moving towards distant shores
Places with hardship and poverty await
Labor and sweat
Blood and tears
Not a sound can be heard
Just endless rocking
And dripping

Drip

Drip
Drip
