My Ship

 

Lyrics

I left my friends and my family behind
Sailing away on a fast-rolling tide
No thoughts of a future or what I might find
On a wave of destruction through the passage of time

Blinkered, unguided with sails to the wind
Through the eye of a storm I drew my ship in
No thought to all hands on this voyage of the damned
Desperately seeking an unreachable land

For the ocean is deep and destructive
In my pride I thought I could conquer its soul
But my ship is now wrecked; I sailed out of my depth
Sinking into a bottomless hole

So many ships passed this wreckage of mine
I spared barely a glimpse I had barely the time
Lost to indifference, tragic and blind
I claimed each discovery as no other's but mine

'Though my ship sailed on glorious seas
I never caught more than a soft-flowing breeze
The once bright harbour lights have now faded to dim
It's time for my ship to come in

For the ocean is deep and destructive
In my pride I thought I could conquer its soul
But I forsook all I had, I must have been mad
No longer shipshape, I'm alone

I left my friends and my family behind
