Only Survivors

Lonely isles. . .
Am I coming or going from these keys of no defense?

I'm stranded here
My good ship's disappeared

Guessing I'm the only survivor
A paradoxical mystery
No trace. . .
Lost in spacious wilderness and sea
Oh, where else could I be?

Winsome sounds. . .
Fleeting through jet liquid night
Rising from the water's edge

I could be wrong
Is that a Siren's song?

Should I fear the only survivor of every sailor's fantasy?
Her calls, enchanting as the stars of Pleiades
Oh, who else could she. . .

Slowly, you appear. . .
From the depths. . .in the distance. . .

The color of your hair says you're the one
You are the moon and sun to me
You blind me. . .
You blind me. . .

She says,
"I am the only one"
Only survivor
"And you are my only one"
Only survivor
"And we are the only ones"

"Now, sow your flames in me
Put on these chains you see
Oh, who else should I be?"

"Only Survivors. . ."
Only survivors. . .

"I am the only one"
Only survivors
"I am the one. . ."

Only Survivors. . .
