Larvae adrift from the South

Ride the Gulf Stream waters

Northward bound

Trusting the ancient currents.

Glass eels greeting the coast

Follow the call upstream

As elvers they greet the river

See what their parents have seen.

      Smash the dam and break the barrier!

      Eel must swim from sea to source!

      As they've always done before!

      A spawning migration

      A river running free

      A dark stormy night

      When the silver eels seek the sea

      Like stars in the sky

      Let the journey begin!

      Smash the dam and break the barrier!

      Eel must swim from source to sea!

      As they've always done before!

Years of golden river dawns

A home for yellow eels

Rest among the roots of trees

'Til one day they dream of the sea.

South through a dark ocean

Like stars in the night

The eternal cycle

Spawn in a seagrass dawn.

       Smash the dam and break the barrier!

       Eel must swim from sea to source!

       As they've always done before!

        A spawning migration

        A river running free

        A dark stormy night

       When the silver eels seek the sea

        Like stars in the sky

        Let the journey begin!
