lyrics

We sail the seas
Of the unknown
Tack the ship
So winds will blow

And thru our days
Keep thoughts at bay
Are we dashed to nothing
By crashing waves?

We wait to see
These ports unknown
And hopefully
We’ll find a home

All that's ever known
Illusions owned
These fragile webs
To pieces blown

So where’s your heart and mind?

(Sailing the Seas) Is it a choice we made?
(Wandering the Ocean) Is it a game we played?
(Always Searching) Is it the price we paid?
(All these efforts come to naught) Will we ever know?

Sailing the seas of time and space
Wandering the oceans of thought
Always searching for our place
But these efforts come to naught

We walk from dawn to twilight
Span the chasm with a bridge
Strewn with dust and starlight
But we’re heading for a cliff

You say you’re free
How do you know?
When did you choose
How life unfolds?

All we ever know
Delusions owned
These fragile webs
To pieces blown

So where’s your heart and mind?

(Sailing the Seas) Is it a choice we made?
(Wandering the Ocean) Is it a game we played?
(Always Searching) Is it the price we paid?
(All these efforts come to naught) Will we ever know?

Will we ever really know?
