A Sailor's Warning
Lyrics:

The morning breaks
The sky unveiled
Our fortune kissed
Upon we sailed
To lather stars
Decide our fate
At latitudes
We designate

The clouds above
The sea below
Our backs are turned
To all we know

What did you think you might see
That the sky would open up and show you all its glory
That the constellations tell the only story

We built this ship
And firm it holds
To hazard all
The sea unfolds
The currents crest
And waves surround
To land we're lost
To sea we're found

And where we sail
We'll never know
Orion points
And there we go

What did you think you might see
That the sky would open up and show you all its glory
That the constellations tell the only story

Do the constellations tell the only story
