about

A song about losing a dear friend to the throes of life. Dedicated to Chris French of Grim Luck who had to leave the band for a job at a Submarine factory in San Francisco. Bad ass.

lyrics

O, weary soldier, dry your eyes. Calm your soul. This tempest will be passing soon, and we'll mend up all your holes. And we'll fight the fires. Douse the flames with brotherhood and autumn rains. And regain the world of which your lost control. Why'd you have to go away like this? You left your brothers here to die. Why'd you have to leave us all alone? O, navigator. Boy with stars. That speck of light must come so far. And when it burns out, we remember it for years. And we'll sail the seas with calm and love. No fear of storms or gods above. And when they ask us, we'll say, "It's Odessa*, sir, where we'll land." Why'd you have to go away like this. You left your brothers here to die. Why'd you have to leave us all alone?

*a reference to a lyric in the song "Odessa" by Grim Luck!
