Song Description

escape from the corporate world.

Story Behind the Song

I was working for a major corporation and the the atmosphere was generally toxic. I wrote this as a way to stick it to the man.

Lyrics

A song is floating just beyond the midnight of a dream
I'm piped aboard to guide the helm in the time I fall asleep.
The melody is taking me to visions far away.
As I sail on through another day.

Rhythms of a distant world pull me into a trance.
Mermaids rise out from the surf in a strange erotic dance
Loving hands caress my face
Cool my fevered brain.
As I sail on through another day.

Chorus:
I've been sailing, sailing through another day.
I've been sailing, maybe I could find the way
If I had only left yesterday.

Instr.

Chorus:
verse.
Struggling through my day I stumble down a rugged path
Weary of the corporate clime
Exhausted I collapse.
An Island Breeze reviving me
Palm trees gently sway.
As I sail on through another day.
