Out on the sea we’ve found
The highs the lows, it’s all we’ve known
It’s just not the same on solid ground

We roll on to the shore, everything is so secure
Can’t help but be unsure
Circling around with ten thousand tales from afar
But not a word to say

We found coves in the dark
Unlit we led from the start
For De Witt and for the King of France

We heard the tales that came around
They found us in the distant sounds
The corners that no one else would chart

On one hand, there are those who doubt
Under the common light that we provided them
Well, I tell you, we’re all the same
But I was raised in this red sea

We found coves in the darkness unlit
We led from the front for De Witt.
It was no simple choice that we took
We stood level with Cook
We stood level with the great

Can you say ours is a butcher’s lot
And this martialled field is not
And these martialled fields are not?
