lyrics

Captain's gone / Lost at sea
Sailed away from what he used to be

Did he lose his way or mind?
A moth to flames of things he couldn't find

Poet, priest-stone God of stars
Hands go out to touch the spirit's heart

All along a numbing course
To mask the pain or maybe something more

“This Earth can not be round
That sky is falling down
But not on me

From space I'll hear the sound
Of stars as they drown
and I'll be free”

Starboard hands on the steering oar
Captain left his charts on shore
one more sip to seize the day
did he lose his mind or way

“This Earth can not be round
That sky is falling down
But not on me

From space I'll hear the sound
Of stars as they drown
and I'll be free”

Down went the sun; and up the mast
out came the stars; out went the past
He said, "All that I've heard
from hearts and from minds
are the thinnest truths our lives float upon."
three miles out and he was gone.
