sailor boy

All aboard
Bring all your possessions
All of your strength too
This no round trip
Say your goodbyes
We never coming back here
If at all we make it back
You see the shipwrecks on the rocks
You see the graves
See them depleted souls
Them too were once buoyant
On this journey wishful thinking is useless
An unnecessary luxury
Confidence a requirement
Pails and pails of faith
‘Cos there are storms up ahead
Rough seas on the horizon
Stay alert
Remain vigilant
Smooth seas never made no accomplished sailor
Sailor boy!
You see them mermaids
Approach with caution
