A ship sails through the darkness of the 20th century, AD
The dolphins make its escort
Overhead it has a rainbow
Following its stern are the Sea Gulls taking their turn
catching the updraft
Light shines down threw the clouds
Captain orders it helmsman, "steer by the helmsman's eye,
keep a stay on the light"
A mariner speaks out, "Why will the whales not follow?"
A Sea Gull answers, "they think themselves strong enough"
"But" speaks the mariner, "the whalers in their greed seek to slay"
"Yes" answers the Sea Gull, "we choose our own way"
