"Nautical Twilight" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
As the day gave way
To Nautical Twilight
I turned my back on
The force of which I am made
I am bound and gagged
Rupturing a delicate balance
When I left my world for his

Day after day, as my city fades
And is swallowed by his sea
She is boundless ?
Even breaking ? home the beach

Every alchemist
Knows fusion and fission
Can unify or drive a force to spend
He has been possessed to drink of the spices
From the east by his liquid mistress
Which then pushed me into the lair of uranium
She divides time between greed and his twin, (some mythological name)

Day after day cities are betrayed
As the earthly sons lay their blades ?

And she is boundless ?
But by then she has been frayed
As the night gives way
To Nautical dawn I can see I must activate
The force of which I am made
