Klaatu – We’re off you know

This song, by my favourite band Klaatu, is about awakening and connection (Klaatu says “merge”). Notice they aren’t singing about “worthiness” or “being chosen.” They speak the full truth. You can come if you want to. Just make a hopeful choice, gather your gumption (courage), step on board, and come right along!

Lyrics

We’re off you know to a distant land
And the only ones allowed to come are those who feel they can
Go right along with the master plan
For we’re all agreed that all we need is sitting there in your head
(Is that all? That’s all. That’s all? That’s all.)

So raise the sails and trim all the sheets
Set your course and jam all the cleats
We’ll follow the north star to know where we are so
You sleepyheads get out of bed right now
Let your fortunes be cast to the wind

And so it’s off we go to some uncharted shore
‘Cause the only kind we’re out to find are those worth looking for
You can tag along should you feel the urge to merge
‘Cause we’re all agreed that all we need is Hope and a little courage
(Is that all? That’s all. Ooh hoo hoo)

So raise the sails and trim all the sheets
Set your course and jam all the cleats
We’ll follow the North Star to know where we are so
You sleepyheads get out of bed right now
Get out the lead full steam ahead smartly now
For the journey begins
The journey begins
Our journey begins come the sun
