Sea Of Tranquility

Album: Search Party (1981)
  • We steered our ship to the Sea of all Tranquility
    The only sound our voices, as star-struck we fly
    Our hopes ever high
    That the songs we sing and the words we bring
    Should never die

    We set our sights on the Sea of all Tranquility
    Our pointless flight betraying now fallen we are
    (Gods of old now broken and defaced)
    Compared to a star
    And the final reach to that barren beach
    Is much too far

    Yesterday our songs of glory shone
    A dream of ages every one
    We sold our souls for senseless gain
    And brought our harvest home in vain
    (Above the seven seas is one)

    Yesterday our songs of glory shone
    A dream of ages every one
    We sold our souls for senseless gain
    And brought our harvest home in vain Writer/s: STUART J WOLSTENHOLME
