Lyrics

Come to the lands at the edge of the sea
search for the bountiful paradise we
heard in a tale from a man, but he died, and it died with he
Off on the infinite seas we be
many many moons and so many more stars that
this is all that we've ever known it seems -
The Only Home We Know


So many lands that we've come to see
Return to shore but we never can find what
we all know is waiting in the shimmering green -
I know it waits for me.
Here where we're handed a stern decree
by the arm of the king who can never ever find us
once we're on the ocean where all men are free
Now join me as we sing!


*Oh! The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
Hallelujah!
Oh! The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
My Darling!
Under the constellations we be
Look to the light of Polaris to guide us
navigate through the waves of Ivory
in the purple light of dreams...
How many treasures can we retrieve
before the wrath of Poseidon will find us?
Drag us to a watery grave beneath
and our widows, they shall grieve

Oh! The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
Jubilation!

Oh! The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
Revelation!

*Oh! The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
Hallelujah!
Oh! The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
The Only Home We Know!
My Darling!

Oh! The Souls! They call to me!
Forever wandering the seas!
Oh! They cry in Harmony!
No need to fight, let go! Release!
