Drifting on the current way to go

Bet we’ll end up somewhere sunny

I really hope this raft don’t overflow

When there’s stormy weather, hurricanes up ahead

So hold on to your head

 

On this tin can island in the middle of the sea

Maybe this container contains more than you can see

Can you see how far just by looking at the stars

Looking at the stars

Looking at the stars

 

Feeding on the feeling that a sailor will save us

Through are suffering we’ve gained both tans and sneakers

No port in sight no insight bout what’s left and right

But stars onboard on starboard side

Yes it seems like we talked pretty much everything over

Under bare poles and no-one knows the course we’re on

If you let me lean in a little bit closer

We’re just bags of meat and water

 

On this tin can island in the middle of the sea

Maybe this container contains more than you can see

Can you see how far just by looking at the stars

Looking at the stars

Looking at the stars

Looking at the stars
