​Peaceful Shores

This song is by Patricia Wake and appears on the compilation Electronic Saviors: Industrial Music To Cure Cancer (2010).

Was the sky ever so clear?
Did the Sun always touch me like a lover?
Did the Earth always hold me up, defying gravity?
Was the simple taste of water ever sweeter?

I have sailed through stormy waters
Writhing with unholy things,
Harrowed by the cries of drowning men.
Fire ripping through the sails,
All hands lost and all guns blazing,
I have fought my way to peaceful shores again.

I could search the corners of the world.
Only the tried can know these treasures for what they are.
Though the wheel may turn against me, I have found
My fortune in the value of a single hour.

I have sailed through stormy waters
Writhing with unholy things,
Harrowed by the cries of drowning men.
Fire ripping through the sails,
All hands lost and all guns blazing,
I have fought my way to peaceful shores again.

And though my breath may only whisper,
Though my mind would rather soon forget,
My bones will bear me, and my blood will run.
I'll know the worth of life and love by every challenge met.

I have sailed through stormy waters
Writhing with unholy things,
Harrowed by the cries of drowning men.
Fire ripping through the sails,
All hands lost and all guns blazing,
I have fought my way to peaceful shores again.

I have sailed through stormy waters
Writhing with unholy things,
Harrowed by the cries of drowning men.
Fire ripping through the sails,
All hands lost and all guns blazing,
I have fought my way to peaceful shores again.

I have come to rest on peaceful shores again.
