Stranded here
Away from meaning
Far from dreaming
On a cold dark coast

All alone
I hear myself screaming
The shoreline is teaming
With all of my ghosts

Now I see
Through moonlight streaming
This haunted evening
The uncounted host

And I remember
Though faceless seeming
Beyond redeeming
A name for most

Here is regret
Another is sorrow
Too much time borrowed
Too much time lost

Now I know
A lifetime receding
Has left my mind reeling
I’m counting the cost

I must depart
This Sea of cold feeling
This darkness retrieving
And sail from these shores
