lyrics

I've met some sailors on the oceans of time/Come to find their home made maps are all aligned with mine/It seems we want the same for all of humankind/to back the truck up wake the fuck up and get out of these lines/I am a sailor on these waves / embrace the choices that I've made / to live outside of a cage / I get to live the open waves /

The Sky is so much bigger when you're free
The stars are so much brighter out at sea.
You think you'll get a chip in my head
Well I'll fight you to the death
I'm no good to you dead

I am a sailor on these waves I am enraged by the injustice all around us it surrounds us effecting us all this place that we go shed our ego and eat off of our own plate an old tradition it's our kitchen and it's always open late/ We dine on all the stories of our kind they fill our mouths and we wash them down with wine/

The Sky is so much bigger when you're free
The stars are so much brighter out at sea.
You think you'll get a chip in my head
Well I'll fight you to the death
I'm no good to you dead

I am a sailor on the oceans of time/ I look to find a reason open season on my mind why / these are unfair conditions we have found ourselves in but we keep rowing always going toward the only opening we see those who are blocking us and locking us away find that the strength inside us like a virus grows everyday

The Sky is so much bigger when you're free
The stars are so much brighter out at sea.
You think you'll get a chip in my head
Well I'll fight you to the death
I'm no good to you dead

To all the sailors on the oceans of time who've got a brother of a sister inside the lines / We keep shouting for a time of their release / Cause it takes each and everyone of us to bring it to it's knees / Those who were once confined (did a stretch of time) they glow like fireflies and light up the night sky!

The Sky is so much bigger when you're free
The stars are so much brighter out at sea.
You think you'll get a chip in my head
Well I'll fight you to the death
I'm no good to you dead
