GO SAIL THE WORLD

Go sail the world
leave everything behind and
learn to live with yourself

Young man venture into the dark
test strength against the sands
go sail the world

Old man wander through life
seek in memory's corridors and
learn to live with yourself

Life is living and dying
wave-filled horizons and stars
go sail the world

no more time old man
to find life's meaning and
learn to live with yourself

Put aside concerns and gather
pride and skill and courage
go sail the world and
learn to live with yourself
