I heard the men saying something 
The captains tell they pay you well 
And they say they need sailing men to  
Show the way, and leave today 
Was it you that said, "How long, how long?" 
 
They say the sea turns so dark that 
You know it's time, you see the sign 
They say the point demons guard is 
An ocean grave, for all the brave, 
Was it you that said, "How long, how long, 
How long to the point of know return?" 
 
Your father, he said he needs you 
Your mother, she says she loves you 
Your brothers, they echo your words: 
"How far to the point of know return?" 
"Well, how long?" 
 
Today I found a message floating 
In the sea from you to me 
It said that when you could see it 
You cried with fear, the Point was near 
Was it you that said, "How long, how long 
To the Point of Know Return?"
