Sail On (Magellan's Mantra) - Poem by Stephen Roxborough

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
