Travelling down by the coast
The stars shimmering in the sky
Looking back at my days of youth
And the place in which I spent my life

There's a beautiful cliff on this side
That was hit and broken by the waves
The people that are odd and cruel
Polluting this world every night

I saw her, like a great ship
I felt in me strain and it's sad
If this place is destroyed again in front of my people
It'll be the day when I am in this life
