Ocean within

There’s an ocean within
So deep I can’t tell
Rivers dancing together
Don’t know its heaven or hell

Every breeze is frozen
Cold waves sing no songs
A dumb struck silence
Seems time has stopped
There’s no ticking sound
no ringing bell
There’s an ocean within
So deep I can’t tell...

The blue-gray lines
From the horizon O’ dear
Keeps calling from beyond
but still I am here...
no song no joy
no breeze no smell
there’s an ocean within
so deep I can’t tell

A wretched ship sinks
leaving all sailors dead
caption’s promise stands broken
sad albatross said:
there’s an ocean all around
so deep I can’t tell
rivers dancing together
don’t know it’s heaven or hell
