about

This track is a tribute to the brave souls who set out against all odds to explore this planet.

lyrics

He scanned the horizon and he said with a smile
You see that boy? I’m going to map out every mile.
Then he rolled up his sleeves and fastened his boots
And every beast of burden knew just what they had to do.

Everybody’s got their urge to collide
With the men who would die over a matter of pride
So wave them off with flags and parades maybe then
Wait for the postcard, you’ll never see them again.

The Hunger, The Lice, The Cold and Disease
The Sodomy, The Dysentery, The Amputees
Heroic prose enunciates the plunder and the blunder
So hold the front page, it’s a voyage of wonder.

‘Perhaps we’ll have to winter here’ the rumour goes round
But how to camp upon the ever shifting ground?
So with his rickety voice and his eyes of blue
The cabin boys shin bones will become my stew.

The Hunger, The Lice, The Cold and Disease
The Sodomy, The Dysentery, The Amputees
Heroic prose enunciates the plunder and the blunder
So hold the front page, it’s a voyage of wonder.

Scurvied gums sup on the bones of the dead
Perhaps they ought have should have stuck to farming instead
So dream of home and hearth and let it never be said
That glory fills the belly like a barrel of bread.
