Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Ships in the making
Bound for a distant shore
World for the taking
Men gone forever more
Boarding and setting sail
Yet victory won’t prevail

[Chorus]
Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground

[Verse 2]
Call in, surrender
Still, I won’t feel like defeat
Men laying down their swords
Each of their own accord

[Chorus]
Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground

[Post-Chorus]
Raise the banner to the sky
Face the fear and hold your head up high
Oooh-oooh, oooh-oooh
Take the leap like you were bound for higher ground

[Bridge]
Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there

[Chorus]
Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground

May we meet again!

    What are a couple of ways for you to learn to cut the cords that are holding you back.
    Hence, we’ll be amazed while browsing new destinations in Antarctica.
    We spent every day with a train that followed the Nantalaha River into the gorge through
    the same name, south with the Great Smoky Mountains.

    On both occasions, the truck drivers did actually take no account of my presence beside
    and slightly in it which meant I had to brake quickly or jump to the left, assuming there was a space.
    I was watching the next thunderstorm channel another night instead of one, but two, Progressive commercials came for the
    air, during the same commercial break. Having trouble locating a cheap auto insurance because you have been classified like a high-risk driver.
