This song is about 'skûtsjesilen', sailing with old cargoships which used to carry soil and shit.


Cut the water
Cut the sky
Mast on fire
Feed the waves

Cut the water with sword and with prow
Feed the waves to the bough
All hands on deck and go for the kill
beast devouring beast in this race

In soaring winds and crushing waves
All who are worthy to stand up to their fate
Are eager to worship, each in their own way
Yet long for the shore which keeps them save

Cut the sky with lines and mast on fire
Feed the wind to the sails
Free from the land cold death surrounds us
Never surrender we know no defeat
