Lyrics:

was it love of sailing
or fear of flying
you took this ship
the man who fell to earth

Oronsay
On the Oronsay
to the rise and fall

Was it stardust
quicksand from which
dreams are woven
or fear of losing
your wits
the man who sold the world

was it a way
in your eyes
or in the papers

Oronsay
On the Oronsay
to the rise and fall

did you dine
at the captain’s table
across the pacific
and follow the sun
come back again
to where you begun

reborn
as a Blackstar

Oronsay
On the Oronsay
to the rise and fall
