I know you harbour him, don't try and tell me otherwise
The skies are dark and overcast, ships can't sail through this storm
Open up the bars and let me look inside the damp and musty cells
I've got to show him that there's nowhere he can hide

But why would he want to?
Sister Sea surrounds upon all sides
And how could he leave her?
Sister's warm embrace is left to waste and she's alone
And where will she go now?
The waves recede into the nooks and crannies of the Earth
And what of the Ocean?
Father pulls together tides until you come apologise

And someday soon, Sister will return
Lapping at the shorelines all around the world
Dip your toes in, feel the water 'round them
Her pelagic crests pass by through waves capped with foamy pearl
