They trace winds of October into December

And call them the Gales of the brave;

Those seafaring men that were victims of wind

And taken by the waters to an early grave.

 

But what could they do? The stories aren't new

They are as old as boats and fish-wife tales.

A family's got to eat, so their stories repeat

And death comes again with the rise of the Gales.

 

Even today, when mega-ships are the way

To brave those winds and the waves that pound.

A freak storm comes about, and without a doubt

What was on the surface will never be found.

 

"They are devil winds," say the likes of men,

"Gigantic waves that turn no ship free!"

But the fish-wife tales describe such Gales

As simple reminders of the powers that be.
