Verse 1:
Once we were kings
Now we're all shipwrecked
So hard these days
to hold our heads up high
Birds pass us by
Reciting their lines unkind
For all those civil savants
who drink fine wines

Chorus:
Dear Derelict
You'll find your stride
Across the ocean tide
Dear Derelict
We'll bide our time
Then fly

Verse 2:
Of all that was fair
nothing remains
All our conviction made fiction
and we're to blame
Curse out their names!
Merchants and pirates the same
We ain't no better
but we'll enjoy our fame

Chorus:
Dear Derelict
You'll find your stride
Across the ocean tide
Dear Derelict
We'll bide our time
Then fly

Till all your fears subside

Part 2:
I thought I really was insane
Turns out it wasn't always this way
Still we just cling to dreams of better days

We might've fallen from Your sight
I'll do my best to make it alright
Still we just cling to dreams of better days

And now I feel really alive
I know it can't always be night
Still we just cling to dreams of righteousness
