coastal chant

heya heya hey
heya heya hey

i go down
to the shore
seeing what i’ve
never seen before
o O o O o O o O o O o
like an eagle flies
over the wind
into the mist
rising

fire water earth air
i will do my living
to know that
you’ll be there
for the world is sacred
and everything within
for ancestral wisdom
and for children

heya heya hey
heya heya hey
