lyrics

[Meely:]
Where am I? I don't understand... I thought I was *GASP*
My plane!
Can someone tell me how close we are to land?
[ooOOOooo]
Yes... land.
I was headed East... We must be close...
How soon can we set course?
I'm faint and weary....but you seem dehydrated
if we arrive you can have all the water you can drink.
[aaAAaahhh]
It's some of the purest, they say, from Natural springs!
Mountains with cool rushing water,
rivers and streams that are ever flowing...

[Crew Member #1:]
I’ve never heard of this land before
But she did fall out from the sky
She speaks of treasures unknown
I want to believe it’s so,
but my gut says no
But what if she speaks truth?
Endless flowing water
to drench our dry mouth full
and land
land from horizon
to horizon

[Osgood:]
There is no such paradise
chasers of fantasies
This rings of ignorant lies
after all this time, I
oh, take your fools ways down
I know you’re through with me
but it was
all of us who lost the land
and now there’s only the sky
then us in between!

My friends
All of our lives every day, every morning
we rise and greet the ocean
the ocean that ---- holds us, carries us
and we have braved this sun's endless beating in the cut of the waters salty sprays for many, many years
I ask you, would we not know by now if this earth had even a speck of land to spit on?
Can you deny your own eyes and all they've seen?
And have you forgotten that human life is fragile and it's only these dead planks between us and the sea?

[Crew Member #2:]
What is the point of surviving
if we are not thriving
the Captain's gone crazy
just staying alive
is driving me insane
You can't be lost if you have no destination
and don't care where
you've been before
Captain, her land
sounds like something worth
searching for!
full steam ahead!

[Osgood:]
There is no such paradise
chasers of fantasies
This rings of ignorant lies
after all this time, I
oh, take your fools ways down
I know you’re through with me
but it was
all of us who lost the land
and now there’s only the sky
then us in between!

[Crew Members:]
“We could be
going in circles, what if this current is
taking us back where we came?”
one day East, the next day South.”
“How long will we trust her intuition?”
Osgood's led us
stuck in a mist - the sea and sky don't mix for long
“When the mist clears, send the Lyre to the East
“It's better than chasing storms

[Crew Member #3:]
The course is set
The course is set
Who knows when we could catch water next
Hunting for storms brings thirst she can't quench
This boat is now mine
I'll steer us to light
Watch Osgood crawl to her cabin below
Crew, grab the ropes! Point us east of the mist
This time tomorrow
We'll all live ashore
Drinking from fountains
With no sign of a storm

[Crew Members:]
We're future sailors
on a
future ship in
search of land
God speed! Solid ground can't be far if you reach!
We're future sailors
on a
future ship. There's
something in the mist
The water is still, is it land that we near?

[Crew Member #2]
Surely it must be the land that we seek!
With mountains and valleys and rivers so deep
The first thing I'll do
with Aerth in my hands
is worship the king
of these new found lands
