Ice on the beach flavored sand
And the ocean's greeting is
A cold and hard hand
Who's great idea was that
To leave a footprint trail
To their newfound island?

Not too far from familiar land
A boy had collapsed in his winter coat and
We tried to return him to heat
But the cold had decided
His soul then would sleep

Bad sign; there's nothin ahead
Much further and we too would be dead

Soon we discovered his name
And the story as well of a game he had played
His father had blinded him young
And sent him out walking
Betrayed by the sun
