Mama, come look quick - there's a light up in the sky;
I see the silent ship, and it's calling you and i;
And if you listen close, the reasons all come clear;
I'm ready now to go, there's nothing left to fear.
Oh there's nothing left to fear.

Leavin' all of this pain behind, gonna sail away;
Lettin' all of these chains unwind, gonna steal away.

Mama, come look quick - do I see an open door?
The passageway is lit, an' it's time to get on board.
What wonders we will see, what beauty to my eyes;
So come along with me, across the rainbow sky,
Across the rainbow sky.

Leavin' all of this pain behind, gonna sail away;
Lettin' all of these chains unwind, gonna fly away;
Makin' over this troubled mind, gonna wash away;
Leavin' all of this doubt behind, gonna sail away.

Mama, come look quick - there's a light up in the sky;
I see the silent ship, and it's calling you and i.
