I have journeyed endless nights
Seen many harbors where I took rest a while
On this boat court near and far
To be what you must you must give up what you are

Only on a wind of hope my heart sailed
Craving mystic oceans to arrive
Those who do not leave and choose to stay
Barley survive

Be a dust or be a star
To be what you must just reach out for what you are
And though you travel many worlds
There's but one way and that's the one you chose
