lyrics

up before dawn / rise in the oceans
i am one / born of the current
restless on ground / cast in the nets
i am the waves / carving away what's known

I am a whaler's son
the sea is the home I know
the sun rises sets and is gone
alone

my ship is a sail / the wind is another
the water is old / tamed by no one
oh mystic seas / kings of the depth
there's calls from the hills:
"it's not a whale I seek"

I am a whaler's son
the sea is the home I know
the sun rises sets and is gone
alone

I am a whaler's son
the sea is the home I know
the sun rises sets and is gone
alone
