A recent trip to the coast with friends brought out lots of ideas, laughing, debating, drinking, sketching, singing and shaking...

This is my musical sketch written on site and multitracked back in my home studio.


Prevailing Wind

Reading between the lines
Sketching the fever of a swollen tide
The endless meaning of a mindful time
Picking up the stones of the smoothest kind

And then it begins
Beyond the veil of original sin
Reaching out to sea
Carried on a prevailing wind

And so you have your say
That the proof's the truth in its own sweet way
The bluest blue carries you away
Back to where you grow

And so it begins
Beyond the pale you take it in
Dream of the sea
and foreign shores on a prevailing wind

You didn't see the signs
Painting a picture of another time
Drawing deeply from a tainted vine
Kicking up the dust on The Poppy Line

And so it begins
Beyond an age of original sin
Setting out to sea
Carried on a prevailing wind
