lyrics

In our little ship of fortune, luffing spirits free to roam
When you opened the bag of wind that forced our journey home

And I was bitter as tonic water, as sour as an orange
Cause I had wanted to push on farther, and thought we had some esprit de corps.

Then I caught something in your eyes, looking over my shoulder into the distance
For what knowledge you had found, as we were wayward bound was the resistance.

And the clouds eclipsed the sun
Here I thought we’d just begun

Well could you believe it, I couldn’t feel it, but it changed you just the same.
So you looked for the words to frame it, but nothing good came.

All my life, well, I’d believed that consolation comes to those with persistence
But the struggle and the doubt, that we couldn’t figure out was the resistance.
