A small ship on the ocean
A strong wind in its sails
We set out on this journey
seven seas from here

We have travelled farther
than anyone before
It's too late to go back now
We're too far from the shore

The stars are different
Eyes in the vastness of space
We don't belong here
But you're not afraid

We have heard the stories
But no one truly knows
What lives across the edges
Whereto the water flows

How small we are
At the mercy of the waves
Close to the edge
But you're not afraid

Legends tell of dragons
and endless waterfalls
But what if we should find
nothing it all?
