recorded 23 August 2014


I can raise the bridges and round up all the snakes
And when I get back home you’ll have dredged up all the lakes
I can cut the barley and you can bale the hay
Together we will work until we’re broken as we lay

And I don’t know, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, what we build
Beyond the hills and in my head
Something hungers for my death

Lately the 3 Ws, they all seem to fail
We winnow and we weed and work all to no avail
Now we’re standing in the road trying to hitch a ride
I go to lift your arm but I need water in my spine
The land for me, it seems to be, I have chosen wrong
I’m gone to sea; my legacy, it lies beyond the storm

And I don’t know, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, where we go
But I am me and you are thee
And that’s the way it’s got to be

I’m drinking oh-so much these days I’ve got a yellow mind
It colors all I do so that I color all the time
My fingers fail as we set sail, my nerves are all adrift
There’s bodies in the sea and monsters in the mist

But soon we reach a better land
And build a bridge of helping hands
On we march that we may find
If life goes on beyond the horizon
