de muiterij aan boord leek niet meer te stoppen
iedereen was angstig en paniek greep om zich heen
de dekmatroos weigerde z'n plicht
lichtmatroos weigerde het licht
scheepskok gaf enkel nog rauw vlees
we noemden hem een beest

iedere matroos haatte toen de zee
iedere matroos was bozer op de zee
iedereen wou d'r af

de kapitein verloor de macht
het schip dreef stuurloos door de nacht
iedereen wou d'r af
kapitein verloor het zicht
en iedereen verloochende plicht
iedereen wou d'r af

het schip liep op de klippen
dit zou over ons kunnen gaan
het schip liep nooit meer binnen
dit zou over ons kunnen gaan

het schip liep op de klippen
dit zou over ons kunnen gaan
het schip liep nooit meer binnen
het was met man en muis vergaan

man overboord
man overboord
man overboord
en net geen vrouw in de buurt

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
