The thin horizon of a plan is almost clear
Bruising our brains hard up against change
Now I see we're in the boat in two by twos
And the very close quarters are hard to get used to
But the wood is tired and the wood is old
But if the weather holds we'll have missed the point

Was built by other than a greater hand
Watching closely over the journey
Seems more than all the courage I can muster up inside
The prize is always worth the rocky ride
And we'll make it fine if the weather holds
That's where I need to go
Sometimes I ask to sneak a closer look
And then maybe steer us clear from some of the pain it took
But the question drowns in it's futility
No one gets to miss the storm of what will be
The wood is tired and the wood is old
But if the weather holds we'll have missed the point
