From the Album:
* Lovesweat

I sailed an ocean, unsettled ocean
Through restful waters
And deep commotion
Often frightened, unenlightened
Sail on, sail on sailor
I wrest the waters, fight Neptunes waters
Sail through the sorrow
Of life’s marauders
Unrepenting, often empty
Sail on, sail on sailor
Caught like a sewer rat
Alone but I sail
Bought like a crust of bread
Oh, did I wail
Seldom stumble, never crumble
Try to tumble, life’s a thrumble
Feel the stinging, I’ve been given
Never ending, unrelenting
Haertbreak searing, always fearing
Never clearing, persevering
Sail on, sail on sailor
I work the sea - ways
The gale swept seaways
Past shipwrecked daughters
Of wicked waters
Uninspired, drenched and tired
Sail on sailor
Always needing, even bleeding
Never feeding, all my feelings
Damn the thunder, must I blunder
There’s no wonder, all I’m under
Stop the crying and the lying
And the sighing and my dying
Sail on, sail on sailor
