Sailor Of The Dark Seas

lyrics

journey to nowhere at all
adventurer, you have lost us all
your ship done sailed
like a coffin nail
you belong now to the sea

journey to nowhere at all
simple as that, you are gone, gone, gone
woulda been nice
if you you coulda thought twice
see you, my darling, in my dreams

in the darkness you honed your nautical skills
learned to harness the elements
and bend them to your will

there's nowhere to come ashore
just float the river for evermore
your soul is free to forever glide
like so much debris
carried out by the tide

simple as that you are gone
easy as falling off that log
you winsome flotsam
we lost some jetsom
jettisoned sailor Erickson

in the darkness you honed your nautical skills
learned to harness the elements
and bend them to your will

there's nowhere to come ashore
just float the river for evermore
your soul is free to forever glide
like so much debris
carried out by the tide

simple as that you are gone
easy as falling off that log
you winsome flotsam
we lost some jetsom
jettisoned sailor Erickson

you winsome flotsam
we lost some jetsom
jettisoned sailor Erickson
