about

'He set up his sail / and ripped it back down / just to see if his life had a meaning' just like the monks with their temples. Creation and destruction walk hand in hand in this song. It's a rare somewhat lineal story for us and it takes you to that other place that we often go to, especially when playing live.

lyrics

Off and away
Off to a day he invented up on his inventing machine
He set up his sail
And ripped it back down
Just to see if his life had a meaning

He’s storing his life in a pigeon hole
He’s figuring out where’s he’s gotta go
He’s thinking it’s all just a show
Cause the last 7 years aint’ exactly what he bargained for
All the boredom and laugher (All the boredom & Laughter)

Half way to see
He’s falling asleep
When a book caught his eye
That he thought he must read

Perched on a stool
It was open to
A page that made sense of his life as a fool

*

When he Awoke
The lump in his throat
Made sense of the words
That he wrote in that note
He gazed on toward
Back to the shore
And chose not to post that note back to them all
