lyrics

the sky did blue my infant eye
dew did fill my veins from dry
weaned upon the warm, damp earth and
chaperoned by crawling lice

i never shall return
i lost the chart and bearing
since i sailed, my heart has failed
to find a coat worth wearing

i mapped you out, such a room you were
how deep and soft the carpet pile
how high and grand the ceiling curve
with lightening flash and birds a-flying

i never shall return
i lost the chart and bearing
since i sailed, my heart has failed
to find a coat worth wearing

how dark your furniture of trees!
what castles they concealed
with peasantry of lazy bees
and nobles all to battlefield -

from whence returned to be interred
within a broken bottle and
daisies laid upon their graves
to mark the bold adventure

i never shall return
i lost the chart and bearing
since i sailed my heart has failed
to find a coat worth wearing…
