  • Set the sails, I feel the winds a'stirring
    Towards the bright horizon set the way
    Cast your reckless dreams upon our Mayflower
    The haven from the world and her decay

    Who could heed the words of Charlie Darwin
    Fighting for a system built to fail
    Spooning water from the broken vessels
    As far as I can see, there is no land

    Oh my god
    The water's all around us
    Oh my god, it's all around

    Who could heed the words of Charlie Darwin
    Lords of war just profit from decay
    And trade the children's promise for the jingle
    The way we trade our hard earned time for pay

    Oh my god
    The water's cold and shapeless
    Oh my god, it's all around

    Oh my god
    Life is cold and formless
    Oh my god, it's all around Writer/s: BENJAMIN KNOX MILLER, JEFFREY CARL PRYSTOWSKY, JOCELYN JAGER ADAMS
