What's this war in the heart of nature?

What's this war in the heart of nature?
Why does nature vie with itself?.
The land contend with the sea?
Is there an avenging power in nature?
Not one power, but two?

I remember my mother when she was dying.
Looked all shrunk up and gray.
I asked her if she was afraid.
She just shook her head.
I was afraid to touch the death I seen in her.

I heard people talk about immortality, but I ain't seen it.
I wondered how it'd be when I died.
What it'd be like to know that this breath now was the last one you was ever gonna draw.
I just hope I can meet it the same way she did.
With the same... calm.

Cos that's where it's hidden - the immortality I hadn't seen.
