Ship in Distress (Seenot)

English translation

Ship in Distress

Versions: #1#2
Lightning, thunder through the night
The horizon beats up and down
Rope and dew grabs on to flesh
above me is the Kingdom of Heaven
to aim ahead for the bright glow
Through the storm of the Kingdom of Heaven
I search the stars and the moon
and the light of the horizon
to (the) great journey to the bright light
Through the storm of the Kingdom of Heaven
I search the stars and the moon
and the light of the horizon
Salt and gaut burns the skin
Silent screams will be loud
Rowing and downfall
Firm grip on our man of the sea
Advance on the destination...
To aim ahead for the bright glow
Through the storm of the Kingdom of Heaven
Advance on the destination...

Seenot

Blitze donnern durch die Nacht
Der Horizont schlägt auf und ab
Seil und Tau gräbt sich ins Fleisch
Über mir das Himmelreich

First I wasn't sure about the title, but a lifeboat is surely a "ship in distress" (that's how I'd translate the title.)

Huh, I never thought about Ship In Distress.. that sounds nicer, I shall change it then.
