lyrics

Outside of time
Ancestral mystery
Fathering Andean crypts and wandering to sea
Swallowed by doldrums
to an unknown destiny

We shall take flight
Six netherworlding farers’ history
Our trades are many though
our instruments are few
To forge an ancient passage in Tuamotu

Gone with the floods
Our only hope to cross the jungle’s ends
But still with baited breath I know
we’ll find a way to run the Devil’s haul

Shore in retreat
As it is with greater horizons on the other side
The sails hoisted and the banners raised up high
Our Equatorial admission drawing nigh

The waves’ conceit
Will surely find a way to turn the tide
Through glaucous chasms with their
misting ivory crowns
The coastal epochs clouding up
and backing down

On the horizon
Storming the sea
The ocean howling endlessly
Tectonic vengeance
Winds of the East
Tiding the nords to the mark of the beastOur vessel is wasted
I am drenched to the bone
Ashore with this oaken messiah of stone

Crowning the reef
With eastern spoils for our company
My feet within the sands I gaze upon the stars
Witnessing missionary failures from afar

On high relief
Callao to copra grinning oversea
One hundred suns afield we’ve
forged upon the mast
Three score our kin will find them
in the looking glass
