From the Deep Blue Sea

Where from come I?
From a deep, dark place
Where from come I?
From the silt of the deep blue sea

Flowing and forming
and spanked to the shore

to open a mouth
and fill the lungs
with air I feed this life
with feet I fled the sea
with fire I made the food
for the ceaseless belly

Upon the earth I dwell

From mother to mother to mother
