"A Seafarer's Knot" as written by and Andrew/campbell Sudderth....
Lucky are the leaves of the clover
She's diggin' for chemistry with the butcher's tools
Shifty are the eyes of the gambler
He's making his tricks his trade and a job well done

Emotions waving wishes to your confidence and eloquence

[Chorus:]
He's turning a-green from these envious glorious things
Applied ambitious faith that can keep us all safe
Invoking a blue that's meant for us, too
What amazing things we will turn to rain

Lucky as a deer in the headlights
Those two are as thick as thieves, not a penny more
Shaky are the hands of the gun shy
He'd rather give up the ghost than take mine

Emotions waving wishes to your confidence and eloquence

[Chorus]

Gather 'round, hold your glasses up high
Drink to love while we wait for high tide
Keep it short, keep it brief; you have my word
Gather 'round while we wait for high tide

He's turning a-green from these envious glorious things
Applied ambitious faith that can keep us all safe
Response recedes like fur; we're all a mess as though we owe him a favor

    General Commentum..this is already posted, as is Vice/Versa, the other song you posted. You probably didnt see them because they're labeled
    (Ciperion) A Seafarers Knot
    and
    (Pre-Versa) Vice/Versa
    The lyrics for Vice/Versa already poseted are wrong though, so you did fix that
    :D

    My InterpretationI don't know what "Ciperion" means, so I'd rather make reference to this lyric.

    I often hear people tell another to rely on their gut instinct if they are largely uncertain of the definitive--this is the best I can do for now, I guess.

    I am not certain why, but upon hearing this song and reading the lyrics through once, I get the vague impression that the song relates with a phenomenon where everybody "rides" on one's accomplishments. And these "riders" do not take time to appreciate the small achievements as much as they do for the larger, more ambitious accomplishments to come.

    If I were to put a percentage to the portion of lyrics that I think relate to my inference, I'd say a measly 12%; but as far as other possibilities, I'm at a loss so this is the best I can do. Take what you can get.
