sail on (Magellan's mantra)


the church says the earth is flat but i know its round
for i've seen the shadow on the moon and have
more faith in the shadow than the church because
the church says the earth is flat but i know its round
for i've seen the shadow on the moon and have
more faith in the shadow than the church because
the church says the earth is flat but i know its round
for i've seen the shadow on the moon and have
more faith in the shadow than the church because
the church says the earth is flat but i know its round
for i've seen the shadow on the moon and have
more faith in the shadow than the church because
the church says the earth is flat but i know its round
for i've seen the shadow on the moon and have
more faith in the shadow than the church
