Unreal unreal
Ghost helmsmen scream
And fall in through the sky
Not breaking through my seagull shrieks
No breaks until I die

The spectres scratch on window slits
Hollowed faces and the mindless grins
Only intent on destroying
What they've lost

I claw the wall till steepness ends
In the vertical fall
My pail has sailed into the sea
No joking hopes at dawn

White bone shine in the iron-jaw mask
Lost mastheads pierce the freezing dark
And parallel my isolated tower
No paraffin for the flame
No harbour left to gain
