Once upon a time, before the lakes and rivers were polluted
Before the animals were poached to extinction
And before man had destroyed the earth's atmosphere
There was a great ship

This vessel was to venture into new waters
To find new resources to make life easier and more enjoyable
It was a simple mission for the crew
Who were excited to be a part of this union

They pledged [Incomprehensible] to the captain and vowed
To be there no matter what, in sickness, health and possible death
As time passed by, there was no new land to be found
As the days grew shorter and the nights grew longer and colder

The crew became more and more
Skeptical about the captain's vision
Originally passionate and committed
True and faithful, they now began to revolt

You cross the line
I was honest, never promised anything
Just a brotherhood to stand for something
And everyone should take the lead
Follow your dreams, if you don't try, you fail

And we started
And the captain went over [Incomprehensible] exchange
He asked them why their lives had changed
There's no gold to be found, no treasure in the ground
We won't die for this, we won't die for you

You've lost your mind
I was honest and never promised anything
Just a brotherhood to stand for something
And even if they disagree
Follow your dreams, if you don't try, you fail

His dream is now a shipwreck in the sand
They gave up then made all their demands
The storm ensues, fifty seven souls die in vain
As what they stole

This union, a battle fought and lost
This union was not about the cause
This union was never about love
This union, this union

This union, a battle fought and lost
This union was not about the cause
This union was never about love
This union, this union

This union, a battle fought and lost
This union was not about the cause
This union was never about love
