Waves of the desert, dunes rising high, they are the bridges across the empty stretches, of the land where nothing survive.
But across this empty land, there lie riches abundant, foreign lands who yearn our wares.
We are are the people of the forest, where the goddess shed her tears.
Good coin is to be had in things we find most common, gifts by the goddess which foreigners would do anything to get their hands on.
Yet the strait between is vast, and it’s too soon to count our fortune, much can go wrong when riding the waves of torture.
Carry us high, Oh dunes of the dry land, the fair golden grain that are harsh and coarse, the deadly wind which we must put our faith in, we, our lives are at Death’s door.
