lyrics

So my muscles get stronger as my will gets weaker, hey hey
Ship steady on its course for cold disaster
The spit mind of a man part cartographer astrologer and ships captain
Only in a dark dark office do I feel ok.

So for now it's the wind and the waves and the throttle of desire
Gnawing from the back of my mind is the key to the map
So for now its the wind and and the waves and the throttle of desire
pushing my mind farther than it wants to go.

In the song of the workers in the belly of the ship
is the length of the night
In the steps of the workers walking underneathe the decks is the pulse of the day

Coming up to land and I feel alone in the breeze, hey hey
And the shape is familiar and the shape is strange as a dream in day
now the reaper might grab me or touch me with his wand
to make me a silver goose in the autumn sky
to make me a silver goose in the autumn sky

In the song of the workers in the belly of the ship
is the length of the night
In the steps of the workers walking underneathe the decks is the pulse of the day
