mei de boat

The boat I've taken

Well, I made it to the Shetlands
or maybe somewhere thereabouts
and I have to tell you it wasn´t easy,
no, it was more or less a trip to hell.

So I am a little burned, broken and
slightly out of control, wondering
what am I doing on a silly island?
Even though the sun is shining bright.

But still, I made it to the Shetlands,
at least  I think I do, or could I be
mistaken, and am I somewhere else?
