What kind of man would
sail off the flat Earth?
Who ventures into the unknown mist
where your worst dreams can come true?

What can you say about a man
who leaves
his own reality
and is willing to go

A man who has no fear of death
for the very meaning of life
exists withing these walls of mist

The need to conquer
fears of doubt
to see what waits for you

beyond the mist.

One mans fear
of the unknown
is another mans excitement

of a New World
