- lyrics adapted from 'by the shore' by edward carpenter

all night by the shore the obscure water
the long white lines of advancing foam, the rustle

i am a bit of the shore
the waves feed upon me
i am not sure anymore
is it pain or joy?
i do not know - my sense numbs

i am a bit of the shore
the waves feed upon me, the desire is over
i am the great living ocean itself
i be everywhere

all night by the ever-beautiful coast-line
take thread from the fingers go on with the work
of all and mine
