Verse 2:
We'll hoist a hand
Becalmed upon a troubled sea
I fear a mighty wave is threatening me
We'll hoist a hand
Or drown amidst a stormy sea
Come follow after cry the humble, you will surely see
Chorus 2:
But still for nothing quite in vain was hope forever tossed
No moments gained, no thoughts explained, no hope forever lost
One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace
Burnt by fire, blind in sight, lost in ire
(repeat instrumental break 2)
Coda (repeat to fade):
[Dm] [Bb] [C] [C#dim]
