Throwing away the land where I lost my family,
I went out to sea alone
Borrowing a boat without permission, I paddled out
The waves were so rough that I thought I would die
By the time I realised it, I was on a pirate ship
Holding out his artificial hand, the pirate said,
"Using such a boat is suicide
The sea is still going mad
If you like, we can bring you to shore"
Don't! I don't ever want to go back
to that unpleasant place again
Please, let me stay
and work here!
No matter what kind of wave it meets, the pirate ship never gives up,
and never sways
I was given the job of being in-charge of the food in its kitchen
And what kind of people live here?
Just how much must I make for these many collegues
for their stomachs to be full?
The pirate who loved artificial hands was the head of the pirate band
He was respected by everyone
Though they called themselves pirates,
they all appeared to be kind people
and treated me with affection
But once they see a ship,
they would begin a merciless attack
Bathed in the blood of their victims,
they returned while wrapping their arms on new food supplies
Why this, even though I thought that we had became comrades?
I rushed into the pilothouse
and tried to steered the ship to move
towards a wall of stone
The cold palm of his artificial hand
stuck my cheek
"This is a sacrifice necessary for survival"
But that's just unfair, I said
You're just bullying the weak
"Then why don't you look at this?"
he said as he took off his clothes
Half of his body was made out of metal
that was breaking apart
"I'm weak as well
Hey, I was thinking of doing things alone
from now on, but
at this rate... I must have company
and you're perfect for the job
So please, won't you come with me?"
The boat that the two of us were riding on
slowly headed out into the open sea,
towards the light of morning
