On the first of December
I was commissioned to sail away
On a ship that was sinking
Forty nights and forty days
And while I went under
The tears of a murdered land
Were turning the earth into sand

I'm too cold to be sleeping
So I light up a candle of regret
To burn the secrets I'm keeping
And pray that someday I can forget
The cries of my people
The voices of doubt inside my head
I think of the things that you said

Am I alone here?
Are there others like me too
Safe in my capsule
Unable to move?
How long has it been now?
And where will this journey end?
Will it end...Ohhh

Got the hands of a farmer
The worlds of a preachers tongur
Got the heart of a sailor
To believe till your work is done
I will stand in the ocean
with these wooden planks under my feet
I will come to your table
After my journeys complete

I believe in the future
I can feel the blood rising in my veins
It's the sound of a battle cry
When only the echo remains
I will serve you forever
I will build you a nation of love
I'm relying on luck, oh God
The four-leaf clover from a dove

And isn't it crazy
For me to start life brand new?
And when I find Ararat
The first thing that I do

I'll be singing a love song
For my, mydear dear wife
And nap in that sweet sunlight

Before the night is over
I'll be crying on your shoulder
My wild imagination
Is keeping me from losing patience
Why did you make us
Only to tear us away?
Why have you chosen me?
It was your fault anyway...
