Push the boat onto the sand O to sail away
2.
As I was walking by the Great Bear in the northern sky I found the seashell missing from the shore below

Come bend your bow, shoot your arrow Clouds will explode into rain Birds are asleep down by the reeds Rocked by the wind I see them breathe In lonely fields I’ve been humming Only the grass overhearing The cat woke me up with his dreaming In lonely fields I’ve been humming Only the grass overhearing

Break Away 01:20

The moon – the moon – the moon – the moon The moon like a bell is swinging I’ve got the ropes to make it ring But as the clouds are fast asleep I’ll just shake her gently Moon be bright and shine

Raven 04:05
Raven, why stare at me with those eyes? Don’t you know I love you Just as you are?

Moonlit Sky 05:09
They’ve only left The wind the wind the wind the wind For you and me And the moonlit sky

O check the scales, dog-headed ape Look out! The time has come to weigh my heart Make me triumphant Make me righteous So no crocodile-lion can take away my heart O you my heart be feather-light!

about

Breaking a 6-year-long discographical silence, my fourth album after 2007's Les Ondes Silencieuses, and the first one I made in my newly- adopted town of San Sebastián, Spain, during the epically rainy winter of 2012! My first time singing, playing percussion, and introducing the treble viola da gamba that became the key instrument on Captain of None! Also featured are my bass viola da gamba, classical guitar, clarinet, toy gamelan and piano. The track I produced last, "Breaking Up the Earth", paved the way for Captain of None in terms of production.
