lyrics

Sailors tell the tales
Of flaccid sails
In jails of stalemate doldrums
Wailing epic fails
Awaiting gales
To blow them up
Or blow them down
To fill their cup
Or let them drown
With blusters thinned
They need a second wind

Heave ho, boys!
What a sight were we
My ship and me
When first we tasted water
Out beyond the lee
In open sea
How we were hurled
Like bantam filigree
Our sails unfurled
And then set free
Inside this airless world
Where I’m chagrined
To tarry on
A second wind

Ocean liners pass us by
But we don’t even try
Their beacons made for beaming out
They’re just as lost as we, no doubt

From this fallow tide
We need a ride
A squall to chase our squalor
Where we now abide
Where once was pride
We only hide
Beseech Poseidon
Don’t rescind
Our second wind

High and dry!
My, but she is yar
My avatar
A stirring westerly siren
Swell, hailed from afar
Like C.P.R.
At last she shows.
How fast she grows
Avast, our mast is pinned
Hearties, dar she blows
A second wind
