You know
When you're in a storm at sea
You do better in following seas
Plowing through walls of water
Only brings damage to your ship
I've stood on deck
Watched the giant waves
Heard the howling wind
and not felt a thing
Yet my men got washed down the deck
When I went the other way
You see
It's not what is going on around you that matters
It's the direction you take
Even if you go to "all stop"
You fare better then fighting threw the storm
You'll get somewhere
Those waves will push you there
You can go against the wind
Get blown away
You can go with the wind
Be on your way

To go against the nature of things
Is going against what is
You get destroyed that way
To go with the nature of things
It's following the way
