Seabird sits on the rocking waves

The sky is bright with amber blaze

The moon hanging ripe at the water's break

Casts silver ribbons in Seabird's wake

 

Seabird's wings stretch open wide

To pull her 'gainst the gentle tide

Riding on the swirling breeze

Seabird drifts across melanoid seas

 

As the sun sets on another day

Seabird floats further and further away

Water whorls like crystal shards

Jut toward the ivory stars

 

But Seabird rocks stalwart on and on

A million miles come and gone

A million miles yet ahead 

A million feet above the seabed

 

Grey clouds above leak heavy drops

Lightning strikes far away mountain tops

Setting the ebony sky alight

While thunder booms in the endless night

 

Out and out in the glassy wash

Many a seabird has been lost

Swallowed by the churning drink

But you, Seabird, will never sink

 

Seabird hold yourself tall and straight

All there is to do is wait

Wait out the storm and, ever brave,

Carry yourself through the onyx waves

 

Strong are your wings spread 'cross the sky

And through the storm they let you fly

So Seabird on the ocean black

Now you're free, never look back
