A character study, if the ocean is a living being.

The sea is.

The sea is not kind.

She will take your love and devotion and give you fish and scallops to eat,

She will take your love and devotion and give you fish and scallops to eat, shells to comb with,

She will take your love and devotion and give you fish and scallops to eat, shells to comb with, seaweed to weave.

The sea is not kind.

She will rock your boat and settle it down,

She will rock your boat and settle it down, she will take you and roll you in,

She will rock your boat and settle it down, she will take you and roll you in, she will let you gaze into her deep, but not too deep --

She will rock your boat and settle it down, she will take you and roll you in, she will let you gaze into her deep, but not too deep -- darkness obscures your vision and you will never know what lurks beneath.

The sea is not kind.

She will demand your devotion and respect,

She will demand your devotion and respect, she will take it by force if necessary.

She will demand your devotion and respect, she will take it by force if necessary. She will take nothing less than your whole self presented upon silver and gold and she will devour you when you call her greedy.

The sea is not kind.

She will give you food freely, sing to you loudly, drown you happily.

She will give you food freely, sing to you loudly, drown you happily. She does everything on a whim, and she will not let you go without a heavy fee.

The sea is not kind.

Her gifts are not of kindness, her takings are not of greed.

Her gifts are not of kindness, her takings are not of greed. She does, and she is.

Her gifts are not of kindness, her takings are not of greed. She does, and she is. You do not own her, but she will take you and drag you to the deep, deep, deep.

Her gifts are not of kindness, her takings are not of greed. She does, and she is. You do not own her, but she will take you and drag you to the deep, deep, deep. She was never yours, but you have always been hers.

The sea is not kind,

The sea is not kind, has never been kind,

The sea is not kind, has never been kind, will never be kind.

The sea is.
