about

“Cracking good song and sound. My heavens I wish people made records sounding like this. Excellent.” Simon Heyworth, Super Audio Mastering.

lyrics

THE VENTURER

Cast the mooring loose at dawn; drift out, tide-borne, to another day,
Through the morning mist that hangs like a shroud across the bay.
Water lapping 'gainst the bow; canvas flapping as it takes the strain.
Trim the foresail as the sun lights the sea, then hoist the main.

This is the morning of The Venturer: today he sails for foreign shores,
And leaves behind him all the things he couldn't suffer anymore.
I take my hat off to The Venturer: the only shackles that he owns
Are in the rigging of his vessel: he's got freedom in his bones.

Stolen kisses in the night; love and laughter on a summer's day;
These The Venturer remembers on the morning of his day.

This is the morning of The Venturer: today he sails for foreign shores,
And leaves behind him all the things he couldn't suffer anymore.
I take my hat off to The Venturer: the only shackles that he owns
Are in the rigging of his vessel: he's got freedom in his bones.

You've got to hand it to The Venturer: the only shackles that he owns
Are in the rigging of his vessel: he's got freedom in his bones.
