Take me to the valley, Retrieve me from the sea. I'll rest the sails of my galley And set the sailors free.

For, this love of power - Now a crest in the strand - Has sowed an angry flower that flourished slow and grand.

I seek this field of nectar that feeds this land of beasts. Myself, a flitting spectre, must snatch their stems and flee!

From the mountain I will holler: Behold! The deed is done! Begone wretched dolour! Return this land to the sun!

Alas, a soft wind beckons to set the sails once more, Lest befallen - this sacred essence. Nay! Tabula rasa - I implore!
