My life has gone off course,

My life is like a ship at sea;

Drifting aimlessly without direction,

No guiding wind that would set the sails to a different speed.

I am sinking,

I am sinking,

My life has no purpose,

What have I to show?

I am sinking,

I am sinking,

What life I have feels empty,

I know not where to go.

Do I let the waves of self-pity take me?

Dragging me to the deep,

The cold and crushing pressure destroying me,

No!  My life still has meaning and a plan,

Now I break through the waves of despair,

The search for my true calling hangs upon the open air.

I am sinking,

I am sinking,

My life has no purpose,

What have I to show?

I am sinking,

I am sinking,

What life I have feels empty,

I know not where to go.
