lyrics

"I travel all over all over the world,
And the hypnotic lure of a train wreck
Brings a new song to an old rhythm,
Welcomes me with waiting arms."

“What’s he talking about? Doesn’t he know the ship be sinkin’?”
"I know what you’re thinking. Hell, no.
We’re going to persevere. Every year there’s these extremes of weather
And it seems like that’s the new normal.

"I know, I know, my crops too were swallowed up
By the storm. But look around, look around -
There’s thousands of acres of farmland
Upon the water so deep.

"And we’ll have cucumbers and squash, tomatoes and greens,
Potatoes and carrots, corn and soybeans,
Eggplants and broccoli - A fantastic variety
Of shapes and colors and tastes."

The work was slow going, together with the stranger.
“It’s ready when it’s ready. You can’t rush this.”
Nobody’s ever really done this before:
A greenhouse on a barge.

"It is an amazing thing,
It’s an amazing, amazing thing."

It’s a funny thing -
He came out of the blue,
He navigated a canoe.
A year ago it wasn’t even on our map.
