"H.M.A.S Lookback" as written by and Clint Owen Ellis Ryan Richard Burt....
I've been staring for weeks (At the cold rusted sheets), and the broken down pillars (Of the years that passed by), at the cold depths of rivers (And the moons that have fallen) and risen as halves...(I've been star gazing and) Whispering to myself at night,
(And by the river at dawn I have discovered the light;) I've been watching the tides (And I've been feeling their flow) And it's a humbling experience to watch as they grow.
(Down, where the beauty of our dreams touches the beauty of the sky and the stars in our oceans become the stars in our eyes, where we reach out forever fir just one last grasp at hope, where the tide's ebb and flow is all our minds really know)
They leave in short breaths, returning to give, and to hold, and to steal...And it's calming and it heals, and it's softening it seems, (To leave my past behind, join the tide) And head out towards the seas.
(Down, where the beauty of our dreams touches the beauty of the sky and the stars in our oceans become the stars in our eyes, where we reach out forever fir just one last grasp at hope, where the tide's ebb and flow is all our minds really know)
I'm lost in the moment where the tide embraces me where I fall into the river and set sail toward the sea. I'm lost and I'm dreaming, I'm lost and I'm feeling like this has waited forever to finally take me...
(Down, where the beauty of our dreams touches the beauty of the sky and the stars in our oceans become the stars in our eyes, where we reach out forever fir just one last grasp at hope, where the tide's ebb and flow is all our minds really know)

    General CommentI think this song represents the crew of the ship HMAS feeling nostalgic about his voyaging times, He is in awe of the power and the beauty of the ocean, the tide and the view of the night sky at sea. One day, he falls into the water, and his final thoughts are of the sea engulfing him, making him part of what he loves, forever.

    Amazing song, chills everytime.
