The Wake of Magellan

As he stood upon the watch deck
Looking out onto the sea
It would offer no solutions
Only silent company
 
So he took hold of the reasons
As he tried to understand
But they offered just confusion
 
As they bled into his hands
 
Dear god
 
Couldn't you decide
What should happen to a man's assassins
 
Dear god
 
Is it suicide
I have never been a man of passions
 
I believe what the prophets said
 
That the oceans hold their dead
But at night when the waves are near
They whisper
 
And I hear
 
There are wounds that bleed inside us
There are wounds we never see
They are part of our refinements
That allow a man to be
 
There are wounds that bleed in silence
With aristocratic grace
There are tears we keep beside them
Never seen upon a face
 
Dear god
 
Do you think it's wise
To remember everything that has ever happened
 
Dear god
 
Could we compromise
Or must the shadows of this night be everlasting
 
I believe what the prophets said
 
That the oceans hold their dead
As I contemplate this stand
What I do
 
Is who I am
 
I believe what the prophets said
 
That the oceans hold their dead
But at night when the waves are near
They whisper
 
And I hear
 
Don't see the storms are forming
Don't see or heed the warning
 
Don't hear the sound of tyrants
Surrounded by the silence
 
Columbus and Magellan and De Gama
Sailed upon the ocean
In a world of ignorance
With thoughts so primitive
That men were killed
 
With no more will
Than that they simply had the notion
But in this world of heartless men
This thing they never did
 
Don't hear it
Don't hear it
Don't hear it
Don't hear it
 
Got to keep it underground
Pretend you never heard a sound
 
If they find it kill it blind it
If they find it kill it blind it
 
Lord tell me what is to be
Lord tell me what is to be
 
They whisper and I hear
 
  • Columbus:

    Christopher Columbus (1451 - 1506) was an Italian explorer and navigator who completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean, opening the way for the widespread European exploration and colonization of the Americas. His expeditions, sponsored by the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, were the first European contact with the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.

  • Magellan:

    Ferdinand Magellan (Portuguese: Fernão de Magalhães; 1480 – 1521) was a Portuguese explorer and a subject of the Hispanic Monarchy from 1518. He is best known for having planned and led the 1519 Spanish expedition to the East Indies across the Pacific Ocean to open a maritime trade route, during which he discovered the interoceanic passage bearing thereafter his name and achieved the first European navigation from the Atlantic to Asia. During this voyage, Magellan was killed in the Battle of Mactan in 1521 in the present-day Philippines. After that, Juan Sebastián Elcano took the lead of the expedition, and with its few other surviving members, in one of the two remaining ships, completed the first circumnavigation of the Earth when they returned to Spain in 1522.

  • De Gama:

    Vasco da Gama, 1st Count of Vidigueira (c. 1460s – 24 December 1524), was a Portuguese explorer and the first European to reach India by sea.
