Let fly, we charted our course
Islands on maps only promise shores
What we had, we don't have and we want it back
We can't live all our lives underneath this flag

Salty brine smashes the helm with spray
Slowly the sailor's mind melts away
We don't know what we want but we want it now
And the stormiest sea couldn't slow me down

Time's been flying but we've been trying too
We're not here for trouble, we'll do what we have to do

One might lose faith in that northern star
When cast away as it seems we are
As you reach then the target can draw away
It's too easy to live from the day-to-day

Hear the crack of the pounding waves
Whip lash on our backs beat us to our graves
Heavy laden and weary we try to stand
And a man hopes the sea does not claim the man

Time’s been flying and now we’re dying too
We’re not here for trouble but trouble is coming soon
Time is burning and we’re done concerning you
The rest is history, we’ll do what we have to do

Far corners warn that ‘here there be monsters’
But here there be monsters everywhere
Jaws of death gnash, but westward winds snatch and wrest us
Back to eternity’s pulse

Time’s been driving, yet still we’re striving too
We’re not here for trouble but trouble tests the resolute
Time is burning, the sea’s now turning blue
The rest is history, we’ll do what we have to do
