VOYAGER
(written 1994-1995/recorded 2004/revised 2005/2007)



you don't know my infiltration
but i'm always in your head
i'm causing demoralization
i'm causing anguish in your neck

'cause it's me
oh yes it's me
who's creeping around the back yard

and there's a fever that is burning
deceives nose and eyes and ears
and your swirling mind keeps yearning
when it smells and sees and hears

'cause it's me
oh yes it's me
who's creeping around the back yard

now as the vessel is put to sea
i take the deep blue sea with me
waving handkerchiefs remain
and freedom justifies the strain

no more sorrow, no more pain
no more tears and no disdain
though i'm feeling kind of scared
well, i could die for all i cared

mother embeds her heart on grief
i said i'd stay and now i leave
just as she passes out of sight
i might be wrong, she might be right

no more sorrow, no more pain
i wriggled out of live, that's my stain
though i'm feeling kind of scared
well, i could die for all i cared

froth on the deck
at the sailor name check
with an empty horizon
and i still gotta goin' on
mutiny
on the dark high sea
it's lack and scurvey
and it's me on the gallows tree
the crew dwindles
and my sanity wanes
as i shake the mast
to knock down potatoes
we are the weirdos
devoid of burritos
while quantities last
i don't dare ask
how long, how wrong, how strong
is the feeling
when there ain't no shore
'til the last of the chums has gone

and i know
and i feel
that there's nothing
that is real

and i know
and i feel
that there's nothing
that is me

is it true though what i say
it it time for me to suffer
in a way
gained release now i got to pay
seems like a heartache from your lover
in a way

ironic smile of fate
too late here comes your warning
and it's blaming me
and my fears reincarnate
every night and every morning
on the sea

one day i wanted to escape
from all the schedules and the schemes
that had been caging me so far
between the pub's door and the bar
so i drank out and paid the bill
left home and went to travel for a thousand miles
or more

i went to find a wonderland
felt like columbus in a way
was confident to find a shore
that i had heard of in a lore
and an age of leisure just will start
left home and went to travel for a thousand years
or more

nothing, no nothing
no nothing can bring back my time
no-one
will stand by my side
not for a thousand times
or more

nowhere, no nowhere
no nowhere is where i'm going to
nohow
will i though return
not for a thousand cries
or more

as i left the ship through water and the sand of the beach i'm running
exchangeable worlds
and by my side my pain, my feelings, my deficiencies, my fears were coming
exchangeable worlds
you cannot change yourself by changing the environment or circumstances
exchangeable worlds
mock at yourself, gloat over the world and deride it with inner distance enhancements
exchangeable worlds

ironic smile of fate
too late here comes your warning
and it's blaming me
and my fears reincarnate
every night and every morning
on the sea
of life
