Ties that bind,
Knots that fail or
A screw shaft carved in soap instead of bone
Humankind as the sailor
Embarking without hope of a safe way home

Keep in mind the moon makes paler
What is dark and what is soaked by the sea alone
Humankind as the sailor
Embarking without hope of a safe way home

The size of the storm that is buffeting us
Is absolutely huge and enormously dangerous
We who rescue others,
Lovers, sons and mothers
Now we feel like the orphans ourselves

If we don't keep up the grind,
I will surely fall behind,
Wave after wave
Right into my face
Humankind
Of one mind,
Set adrift to ride the storm

    My InterpretationFor me it is about the human drive for exploration. The spirit of our endeavor to advance our understanding. Specifically with space travel.
