lyrics

It's been 40 days since we've seen land
windburned face and bleeding hands
my belly's empty and my body's sore
break your back against the oar

HEAVE HO
THE TASTE OF DEFEAT IS NIGH
SCREAMING I
BREATHE IN ONE LAST SIGH

The sun beats down like a tyrant
The salt from sweat and sea combine
I grit my teeth and I close my eyes
for so long that I may be blind

HEAVE HO
THE TASTE OF DEFEAT IS NIGH
SCREAMING I
BREATHE IN ONE LAST SIGH

one last miracle for the journey home
albatross falters, soldiering on
pray to god we are not becalmed
and to keep the bow moving through the foam

insurmountable odds
like a divining rod
broken like blisters
endless as gods
sail on

ALBATROSS
BARE THE LOSS
SAIL ON
