Sinkin’ in the sea

Yes, ‘n’ how many times must a man look down

Before he can see the sea?

Yes, ‘n’ how many ears must one man have

Before he can hear people cry?

Yes, ‘n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows

That too many people have died?

The answer, I fear, is sinkin’ in the sea

The answer is sinkin’ in the sea.
