This is a title track from a single released in june 2015. The song is inspired by the journey of Odyssey, or Ulysses. Lyrics tell about his long journey home.


Within open sea we are lost
Never able to find
Our true motherland
We sailed from the enemy coast
Self-assurance and pride
Presage us bitter end
The singing of sirens enchants
While the storm winds keep roaring around our ship.
Great beasts, cruel gods all around
To the shores of Ithaca they're led by Uliss.

Severe way home lies ahead,
Full of dangers and traps, misery and deceit.
I see my companions fall dead,
Even further reducing my small wretched fleet.
Small crew of the poor tired men,
Led by brave cunning leader through hostile strange sea
Confronting the force greater than
Any man can imagine, predict and foresee.

Floating the dark ocean waves bored us down,
Plenty of time to recall and regret
There's just one ship and dark waters around
So much is lost, is there more to be found?
I close my eyes dreaming of solid ground
Of home I will never forget.

The long hard way home is behind
But the curse of the sea is awaiting its time
I'm finally back for my life
But I can't find the peace
And leave them behind.
