Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

Live Free


Life as a pirate is a lesson
Over the years I have grown wise
Watching the tide abate before
my very eyes

So I learn to live quietly
like the sound of light
I may pull a straw or two
Still I keep the faith

Not bothered by weather
Without a feather
I got better
Faced each day right

Not intimidated by fright
Nor the mask in the night
Brave hearted like a knight
Live life free like a kite
