about

written late in the evening in a yoga studio, on an acoustic, I was just looking for something to sing that sounded good with all the natural reverb of the hardwood floors and mirrors.

lyrics

Man in a boat
drifting toward
dark waters

Man in a boat
drifting toward
dark waters

You gotta give me some latitude
you gotta point me home
you gotta give me safe harbour
off to starboard, before I sink like a stone

Man in the sky
falling toward live wires
Man in the sky
falling toward live wires

You gotta give me some wings to fly
You gotta help me find some wind
you gotta make me much lighter
than I am, before I sink like a stone

Man in the dirt
Crawling toward
air and sunlight
Man in the dirt
Crawling toward
air and sunlight


You gotta throw me some rope to climb
you gotta help me find my feet
you gotta give me the strength of mind
before I’m buried in the dirt like a stone

Man In A Flame
Man In A Flame
Man In A Flame
