Ship of Fools


They said that I would see the world
and the world would set me free
But they put me on a Ship of Fools
And all I saw was sea.

It seemed that everyone aboard
had thunder in their soul
I didn’t want to feel the like
and add to sorrow’s toll.

It took more than I ever knew
to navigate my way.
But when I came back home to you
I heard you’d moved away.

I worked upon a little land
to buy a pile of stones.
But know that all I call my own
is built on human bones.
