My Shadow

Language: English

My mother, she was subtracted by the gods
So many teardrops in her ocean, so much life against the odds
So many pearls lie without need
No more mouths will her seafood feed

My father, he was brought down to his knees
By some thugs of organized crime, they were out there collecting their fees
Generation nine of our family
He too an Old man of the Sea

*So where does that leave you?
Grasping for a lifeline to hold onto

My village was burned down to the ground
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust; not a single body found
No one to soothe me with my wounds that bleed
Not a single drop of water in my need
