The North Star Grassman and the Ravens
They stood upon the deck
As the ship went out to sea.
The wind it took the sails
And left the land
All upon the shore for
To wonder why the sailor goes.
All to close their eyes
And wonder what the sailor
That is you to them,
That is how they think you are.
Never on the land,
But sailing by the
To the tower and to the ravens
And the tale that hopes they'll never leave.
What if they should go?
always dread to think of them.
I wonder if they flew one day
And no-one ever knew they'd gone
To circle over ships
Claiming yet another son.
That is you to me,
That is where I think you are.
Never on the land,
But gone to find the North

Crazy Lady Blues
Missed the morning too, didn't rise before noon.
She's a lazy lady today.
Always yawning, you with
your eyes on the moon.
You're a crazy lady I'd say, da da da.
Now should I say more, for I know so well
no hazy maiden in grey.
How can I be sure, it's not easy to tell.
But you're a crazy lady, I'd say.

The wine it was drunk, the ship it was sunk,
The shot it was dead, all the sorrows were drowned.
birds they were clouds, the brides and the shrouds
And as we drew south the mist it came down.
The wooded ravine
to the wandering stream,
The serpent he moved, but no-one would say.
The depths of the waters, the bridge which distraught
And brought to me thoughts of the ill-fated days.
The temples were filled with the strangest of creatures
played it by ear on the banks of the sea.
That one was found but the others they went under.
Oh the tears which are
shed, they won't come from me.
The methods of madness, the pathos and the sadness,
God help you all, the insane
The black and the white, the darkness of the night,
I see only smoke from the chimneys arise.
he flew all across the sky and woke me.
He flew solo on the mercury sea.
The dream it came back, all about the tall
The sacred young herd on the phosphorus sand.
