Crewmen of the True Companion
I can see you're tired of action
In this everlasting twilight
Home is just a sad abstraction

Just beyond the troubled skyways
Young men dream of fire and star-shine
I've been dreaming of my own green world
Far across the reach of space-time

    My OpinionPersonally, I consider this Donald Fagen's magnum opus. Everything about this recording glows, but what blew me away was the vocal arrangement. This is fantasy. The kind of tone it creates lends itself to any number of images in the mind, anything from sailboating to space travel, etc. Fitting that it ended up in "Heavy Metal" by itself because it doesn't fit Steely Dan's material before it OR Donald Fagen's material afterward.
