Hackers: The Collective Spirit

Riding the waves is the Collective Spirit.

A boat load of memories
happiness and sadness
A true form controls the sea
It is a Collective Spirit.

The caress of a loving mother
now tenderly rocked by the sea.
Music sings through the air
its song now sung by the breeze.

Riding the waves is the Collective Spirit.

It travels down on its voyage
A powerful dream that came true
of hope security and truth
It is the Collective Spirit.

The blessing of the new-born
reborn by the waves.
The first found friends
now part of her crew

Riding the waves is the Collective Spirit.

The boat of dreams
Lost out at sea
Through the waves
It is the collective sprit

The tears of painful times
now falling in the rain.
The shout of a crowd
now cries in the storm.

Riding the waves is the Collective Spirit.

The boat made from many but built by few
made from the memories of the many
but built from the dreams of the few.
