Quasi – Sea Shanty

  • Sea Shanty

Repair the hull, replace the sails.
The monkey wrestles with the ghost
And a thousand pleasures form a thin veneer
Over lack of hope.
The captain was rightly murdered by the crew
But now they don’t know what to do –
Drifting on the murky Sargasso of the everyday.
Work and slave and skimp and save
And you can buy yourself a bigger cave
And a thousand little cruelties we agree to pretend to ignore.
The ghost has got the monkey by the tail
And all they both can do is wail.
And you and I go drifting by the abandoned vessels of he everyday.

Heros by David Bowie

David BowieI was driving somewhere with my son (Alex) who was four at the time. Heroes came on my ipod and i hit replay once it was over. Alex asked me, “Dad why do you like this song?” And I told him that it reminded me of friends I lost touch with and made me think of times in the past when I acted differently than I did now. He didn’t say anything for a bit then told me “That’s not what this song means to me at all”.
