I heard the men saying something
The captains tell they pay you well
And they say they need sailing men to
Show the way and leave today
Was it you that said, how long?
How long?

They say the sea turns so dark that
You know it's time, you see the sign
They say the point demons guard is
An ocean grave for all the brave
Was it you that said, how long, how long
How long to the point of no return?

Your father, he said he needs you
Your mother, she said she loves you
Your brothers, they echo your words
How far to the point of no return?
To the point of no return
How long, how long?

Today I found a message floating
In the sea from you to me
You wrote that when you could see it
You cried with fear, the point was near
Was it you that said
How long, how long, how long to the point of no return?
How long, how long to the point of no return
No return
How long
How long
How long
How long
How long
How long
How long
How long

    My InterpretationDreaming has two functions, the first is to rest the body, the second is to return to the point of origin.

    This song is talking about being born.

    I heard the men saying something
    The captains tell they pay you well
    And they say they need sailing men to
    Show the way, and leave today
    Was it you that said, "How long, how long?"

    Before we were born, we wanted to come to earth, and we knew there would be both joy and pain here. Still, we also knew that by coming here we would lose the knowledge of where we were. So being born, meant to completely change into a new creature, a new life. There was much anticipation to be on earth and yet fear. Because in order to enter earth, in an earthly body, we must die as well.

    The ocean of darkness is being in the womb. When we first discovered physical darkness.

    "Today I found a message floating
    In the sea from you to me
    You wrote that when you could see it
    You cried with fear, the Point was near
    Was it you that said, "How long, how long
    To the Point of Know Return?"

    The floating message was the point of light in the darkness. The vagina opening for birth, or the doctor opening the uterus for birth.

    Still...when we dream at night, we go back to that other world and live and bring back knowledge to live this life on earth as well.

    The point of "knowledge" returning ? What this lyricist is trying to convey, is the moving of the soul between realms, Earth itself being a realm. The dream realm, the physical realm, the ethereal realm, they all exist together and need to synchronize in order to function under the laws of destiny.
