I have saved many people here and there,
Everyone deserves to be helped,
I can’t afford more people dying.
How can I help them if I can’t help myself?

People are sick and dying,
And they’re depending on me to save their lives,
Sick people, here, there, everywhere!
How can I help them if I can’t help myself?

I stare at the gleaming ocean and pray
For the illnesses to go away,
I’m losing hope.
How can I help them if I can’t help myself?

The currents, the sea, the reflection,
I can see my own eyes starting to tear up,
I want to help but I don’t know how.
How can I help them if I can’t help myself?

Nick, the poor boy on board,
Helping Samuel Evans to learn to read
He isn’t always treated in the best way
But never treated the worst.

He wants to help too,
I can see he’s just like me,
He wants to help with everyone’s health,
How can I help them if I can’t help myself?

I see now my time has come,
My time is definitely done for,
They’ll need to find someone new,
To replace me and help people anew.
