lyrics

White flags and buckles
Glad rags and shovels
Darkness and shadows
Lost lands and outposts

A transatlantic northern star
Set sail for test of seas
The hearts were pinned
On 28 brave men
An expedition
Of a land unknown

Tip of the cap
And it’s off to sea
It’s south by south
Where dogs aren’t free
No money no rest
Medals on their chests
Blessed with endurance
OH YES!

Rag tags and black holes
Music that rattles
Symbols and lost souls
In search of tomorrow

A transatlantic northern star
Set sail for test of seas
The hearts were pinned
On 28 brave men
An expedition
Of a land unknown








Slip of the tongue
In the silence of night
They boarded that ship
While the other men fight
In search of quest
And her tattooed
To my chest

A transatlantic northern star
Set sail for test of seas
The hearts were pinned
On 28 brave men
An expedition
Of a land unknown

Dead on their feet
And they marched to the beat
To the lines never crossed
And they did for us
To the ones before
Still lost in the frost
