Castaway on an island since I was twelve
at first I did everything I could to return
all I ever had, thrown away
sank in the ocean's yesterday.

forced into adulthood, forgetting my childhood
Why did I grow up so fast?
my life feels complex, slightly dull
I wonder; What's the square root of -1?

I watch the tidal waves crashing,
whispering

-evolve, take your blinkers off
the most beautiful sea
is the one you've yet to explore

And once you start sailing to find your way home
keep in mind this is your only hope

And once you shout ''Land Ho'', you'll soon realise
great courage and desire can reshape your life-
