New Rhetoric – Sails & Horses lyrics
Verse A1
Tales of western civilization
Steeped in mystery and salvation
Stories told of heroes bold
Fantasize about days of old

Hook (Chorus)
Winds are blowin’ us way off course
Where we’re going I don’t care
Travel the world with sails and horses
Taste the spices in the salty air

Verse B1
We sleep and we eat
We stay and we fight
There’s terror to beat
And might makes ri-ight
Threats to our lives
Who are we backing?
Liberty dies when they
Release the Kraken

Verse A2
Guided by a god of light
Can Zeus protect us in the dead of night?
Is this a warrior or a Prince of Peace?
We plead our fate to the Golden Fleece

Hook (Chorus)
Winds are blowin’ the seeds we sow
Where we’re going I don’t know
Travel the world with sails and horses
We’ll be facing unnatural forces

Bridge
Hercules was their man of steel
Commanded many forces
Ulysses had a mighty bow
But will they ride our horses
Medusa was a terrible foe
Until she was made headless
Blinded, Cyclops called drunk from his cave
Please let me be, why can’t you see
That Nobody is torturing me

Bridge 2
Be careful there’s danger the tension is mounting
The Scylla and the Charybdis
There’s pressure on Atlas, the weight of the world
I need something to grip this!

Hook (Chorus)
Winds are blowin’ us way off course
Where we’re going I don’t care
Travel the world with sails and horses
Taste the blood in the salty air

Verse B2
We have Ares, Apollo
So don’t be afraid
Iris, Poseidon
As long as it takes
Call to the gods…Artemis
Are we too late?
Our next stop is
Down to Hades

Hook (Chorus)
Winds are blowin’ us way off course
Where we’re going I don’t care
Travel the world with sails and horses
Hear the sirens in the salty air

(Mandolin Instrumental)

Bridge 3
There’s trouble in the sky
Consult the Oracle at Delphi

Verse B2
Athena and Hermes
So don’t be afraid
Persephone and Aphrodite
Fatalistic human race

Call to the gods
Are we too late?
Stay the course
As long as it takes
Hear our cries
Babes in waiting
Our next stop is
Down to Hades

Hook (Chorus)
Winds are blowin’ the seeds we sow
Where we’re going I don’t know
Travel the world with sails and horses
We’ll be facing unnatural forces

(Electric Guitar Instrumental)

Winds are blowin’ us way off course
Where we’re going I don’t care
Travel the world with sails and horses
Taste the earth in the salty air

Winds are blowin’ us way off course
Where we’re going I don’t care
Travel the world with sails and horses
Hear the voices in the salty air
Taste the spice in the salty air
We’ll be chasing unchartered courses

(Ending Instrumental)
