great bird of grace, come calm me down
build your nest up in this heavy crown
come tell the story of the prince who brings the dawn
comes the earthquake, swallows the storm
and the sea shall be still, when he comes
and the sea shall be still, and the sea shall be still
when he comes, when he comes
when i am naked, sleeping in my boat
lay your eggs down, deep within my throat
when those weary shells begin to crack, my mouth will open
and i'll sing your babies back in my...
oh, the sea shall be still, when he comes
oh, the sea shall be still, oh, the sea shall be still
when he comes, when he comes

    General CommentHaven't really had time to dwell much upon the song but did a bit of reasearch and wiki came up with a Greek myth (quite apt really as it sounds very much like the early Theseus).

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    So all I can say it's probably about this, though does anyone know what the deal is with the song? I mean, is it going to be on the next album or something?

    I don't really follow Patrick much these days so I don't have any idea.
