I spent the best years of my life waiting
for this moment
A time to call my own, a place to call my homeland

It’s come here far too soon
I sit around my room
Hatching my plans and schemes I mostly leave forgotten

I spent my longest nights awake wondering through the outside
Amused but still deranged, divided on the inside

Returning to the core
The place i can’t ignore
The wonder behind the fear I just can’t seem to shake off

To dream or do
To do or die
To sink or fly

To get a clue
To run and hide
To laugh and cry

I turned my back on battles won and sailed to new adventure
The journey made by all, a lonely mortal tenure

To Ithaca I sailed
And though I have not failed
My home is a fleeting camp, the journey’s just beginning

I spent the morning hours awake writing down the lyrics
Resolved to get it right - to capture the true spirit

Although I sing along
That moment now has gone
My heart still a restless sea where Ithaca is calling


from Ithaca, released January 1, 2012
