Sailing Solo - Beautiful South

 

Imagine sailing solo

Around the world

Only to find you've missed

A continent out

 

And as your happy turns choppy

And tidal wave swirls

 

You're wondering why

There's no one about

 

At least Captain Scott

Actually stood on the spot

Where he planned to

Put up Union Jack

 

And though Captain Cook

Cursed the map that he took

He got near enough

For native's attack

 

That's how it feels

Trying to navigate you

Even with compass and

Infinite time

 

Just when I think

I've found some part

That's new

I find a flag already up

That's not mine

 

Circling you is

Journey minus view

Exploration without

Reason or reward

 

'Cause when I get near

You use an arrow or spear

To prevent my heart

Ever being shored

 

The earth ain't flat but

It's a simple doormat

 

Compared to your

Unclimbable self

 

The desolate terrain

You have to cross to your brain

 

Just one of your slippery shelves

 

That's how it feels

Trying to navigate you

Even with compass and

Infinite time

 

Just when I think

I've found some part that's new

I find a flag already up

That's not mine

 

And if I ever get close

I'll need a banner or post

To hang it from

First there or not

 

So voyage may uncover

A sister or brother

And a friendship that

Colombus forgot
