Tekst piosenki:

When I was a child I tried to sail away to sea
The ocean symbolized adventure, romance and mystery
The sea holds all the secrets of man's mortality
Great men come and go, but the sea lives on eternally
Some men are shallow, others are deeper then the sea
But all men sometimes show emotion and feelings for humanity

But if he has a heart (So far everything has gone as planned)
He keeps it locked away (Everything's on schedule, no surprises)
Somehow I must get through (The ship's in order, everything's in place)
Somehow, some way (Full steam ahead, keep up the pace)

This man, he has no heart, can't understand him
It's so frustrating and creating[?], where do I start?
This man, he has no heart, no soul to penetrate
No sign of love, no sign of hate
My mind is all at sea, is there something that I've missed?
Am I looking for a man who can't exist?

And if he has a heart (So far everthing's on schedule, no surprises)
He keeps it locked away (The ship's in order, everything's in place)
Somehow I must get through (Full steam ahead, keep up the pace)
I will some day

When I was a child I dreamed man journeyed to the stars
I had such great imagination, infinity seemed not so far
Demo: But men of little vision only see reality
Musical: But am I losing touch with the man I used to be
So why is this man defeating me?

Help me understand (This journey round the world has no surprises)
I must get inside his mind (But this tarpaulin's burning my back-side)
Is there something that I missed (I must admit Mr. Fogg's a devious fellow)
Or am I going blind? (But to me he looks a little shifty-eyed)

He is a fake, he's nothing special
The man's a villain, he's just a criminal, he's not all he seems
And when I find a clue (80 days and still so much to do)
He'll have nowhere to run (I've been [?], but I'll break through)
The evidence will prove (Somehow I know my judgment's true)
He is the one

I wonder if the Egyptians knew or cared about the cost
A life is a life and a life costs nothing once that life is lost
I wonder who those poor devils were and when and how they died
It all seems so undignified

Did their poor regents realize what they were dying for?
A contribution to an England that they never saw
A monument should be erected with a tribute underneath
In Hyde Park or Hampstead Heath

Is this true love? (We're right on course, just as I planned)
Is this romance? (If I might say, a perfect piece of estimation)
Yet, I must stay true (By dawn we'll reach our destination)
To my old man, except for you (Don't tell the crew)

Looking for our man (Full steam ahead with no surprises)
Searching high and low (The ship's in order, everything's in place)
Over sea and land (By dawn we'll reach our destination)
The sky and earth below

I'll search the seven seas to find the truth
Before this journey's over, I'll find out

Is it all my self doubt? (I'll sniff him out) (The way you just grin)
Perhaps I'm written-out (I'll find some proof) (The way that you pass) (And lock him in jail)
Perhaps I'm drying up (The way you just look) (And throw away the key) (It could have been him)
Perhaps it's me?
