Track Name: The Holy Grail
you've got my hand, while your eyes are closed
you'll dive into the deep end, where all the sadness goes
'til it get's you in the corner, with nowhere to go

you think about turning back,
but behind you is all the black
you left in the old car wreck
when you said 'no'

my heart's on my shoulder
it's been there all the long
and our love's growing older
and i'm staying young

could it be i've found the holy grail?
and i'm just holding on
i've been trying to hide the blood on my back
but it's coming through the cloth

things are getting stranger
by the minutes in the day
turning keys, and throwing them away
these doors they don't lock,
and they open at the touch
maybe we've been expecting far too much

you'll find your man, while your eyes are closed
you'll dive into the deep end, where all the sadness goes
'til it gets you in the corner, with nowhere to go

you think about turning back,
but behind you is all the black,
you left when my car you wrecked,
when you said 'go'

my heart is on my shoulder
it's been there all the long
and our love's growing older
and i'm staying young

could it be i've found the holy grail?
and i'm just holding on
i've been trying to hide the blood on my back
i've been trying to hide the blood on my back
i've been trying to hide the blood on my back
but it's coming through the cloth
coming through the cloth
coming through the cloth
Track Name: Minstrels & Mutineers
Once there was a captain,
sailing in an ocean of blues.
He got tired of that life;
but he couldn't stand to lose.

So he woke up before morning,
at the fiery dawn.
And without any warning,
he was gone.

When the shipmen woke to sunlight,
and found their captain to be gone;
they knew it wasn't mutineering,
but an end to the minstrel singing songs.

Tears began to fall,
upon the shipmen's faces.
Not because their captain was gone,
but because they'd lost their navigator.

The captain sailed along,
the waves grew high and high.
He sailed above them all.
He had done so all his life.

So goodbye to the captain,
goodbye to that life.
Goodbye to the shipmen,
and to the shipmen, goodnight.
Goodbye blue ocean,
I wish the best to you.

I'm afraid my sailing days are through.
I'm afraid my sailing days are through.
