Midnight dark water,
The dead calm horizon
cracks in to fury and sound.

Then spoke the thunder,
‘Drop in your anchor
‘cause this storm is for weathering, son.’

Shipwreck on main street,
The torn sails and hull breach,
The captain made his way through the crowd.

Midnight still harbour,
The mouth of dark water
Waits for the next storm to come.

Come on, let’s go.
You move too slow.
The storm - it grows
And you move too slow.

Midnight dark water,
Your sons and daughters
Sleep in candled windows tonight.

They sing to the thunder
And calm the horizon
So that your ship can return.

Come on, let’s go.
You move too slow.
The storm - it grows
And you move too slow.

Won’t you stay? Stay with me.
We’ll disappear, we’ll disappear.
