Setting sail

So you set sail under the scarlet sky
Hoping that for you the wind will not die
Oh, to reach it before the night falls
That destination from where come those calls

Slipping into oblivion in a world so big
Were it buried we'd have far to dig
All around, though figures abound
Silence reigns, for not one true is found.

Maybe we shall find you in a cave
For it feels like being a master's slave
Even though we might beg and plead
Sometimes it just continues to bleed

Just as you think it all must end
A glimmer of hope appears from round the bend
Across the oceans, maybe through gates
Could it be possible that peace awaits?

So you set sail under the scarlet sky
Hoping that for you the wind will not die
Oh, to reach it before the night falls
That destination from where come those calls.
