lyrics

Landfall

One time I was a sailor
Travelling the world
And I saw the world blind
Hidden from view
Was a world before me.

One time I was a traveller
Sailing the world
And I loved the world blind
Hidden from view
Was a world after me.

But the wind blows my face
And a change rides its back along the way
The crew changes course
With a course of nostalgia for a life twice lived
And every landfall brands all
Life but a dream
And as the breeze blows I go
Gently down the stream.
One time I knew a sailor
Choking on air
Choke on despair with every breath he tried.
Hidden from view was a world before him.

One time I saw this sailor
Travelling the world
He was my hero at the time
Hidden from view was his world after me.

Now the wind blows my face
I remember the man he used to be
But see excuses he uses
To frame his corrupt reality

Now every landfall he falls
Out of a dream
And every nightfall takes him
Gently down the stream.
