Sea Spirit

Sedna was the Sea Spirit
Who instructed the whales
The salmon
The seals
The white birds
Pay attention to the tribes
Serve them
With your bodies
I will look after
Your souls
Look to the shore
But stay in the sea
They'll come for you
Soon
Be prepared
Self-sacrifice
Is the reason
But don't make it easy
Let the tribes work
For their food
