Ships are safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.
You won't find your true love, til you walk out that door
Set sail for the new world
Hoist the jib and weigh anchor
Think about sea-going metaphors
And leave harbor

Lately I've been occupied
By some mental octopi
Truth be told, I'm at sea
Channeling the beast in me

Can't be what I need to be
Being what I used to be
Can't learn secret mysteries
Til I learn to set it free

Waves, crashing down, crashing down over me
Taming the Kraken, let the Kraken carry me

Will not let it drag me under
Know that I will bring the thunder
The ocean will not be my death
The beast and I will share a breath

Chorus twice
