As the dawn breaks
On new horizons
Rays of hope are cast
Beneath the sea
Behemoths of the ancient times
Cry their mournful song
Through eternity

Hear the songs
Of oceans blue
Where children's hopes and dreams
May never come

See the killing
And senseless slaughter
As their number
Fade with the setting sun

Tears of pain and sarrow
To be sung once again
All of our dreams
Our dreams will never end

Can't you see the tears of Cetacea
They're what helps to keep this ocean alive
Cry for me you tears for Cetacea
Without them this world would surely die

With steam and steel
Used to hunt them all
Now closer to the
Edge of extinction

Their flesh and bone
Prized commodities
Death pays the price
It's mark of distinction

From coral reefs
To the murky deep
A few safe havens
For the very last

As they race now
For their survival
Fighting against
The deadly harpoon blast
