Want to rule the outlands
And I want to rule the sea
But if you're not coming back
I will sleep eternally
I don't want no heavy dogmas
And pearls crush my teeth
I just want my sailor
To sail back to me
The captain has a treasure
(he) says I hold the key
Only roses swim and blossom to you and me
Want to rule the outlands
And I want to rule the sea
But if you're not coming back
I will sleep eternally
Every time you're up and gone
I'll be up and gone
Just as long as I can
Every time he be up and gone
He be up and gone
Just as long as you tell me
Want to rule the outlands
And I want to rule the sea
But if he's not coming back
I will sleep eternally
