about

I had this hilariously misguided idea at one time that if there were an apocalyptic scenario , the first person i would seek to band up with would be Todd P, the rock promoter from nyc. Cause he had all the rocker chicks at the time, and thats what I was into. This song is kinda a trick, its supposed to sound like its from 500 years ago, and then there is a twist that its actually taking place in the future. This one would have been cool to do as a band, because it was like 7 verses long, and when we recorded it the first time we fucked up where the verses and chorus' went, so i had to reassemble where the lyrics went, and then it was impossible for Joey to drum on later as well. There is a cool instrument on this track, the Grendel Drone Commander, and also this pocket piano. The drums got fucked up in the tape machine which was actually a good thing, they make a sound that you just won't hear anywhere else.....we ran them thru a space echo too.

lyrics

Sinbad was a sailor / on the wide and open seas
he was traveling the trade routes / for unsuspecting merchant marines
with his gangly gang of sailors
they were scurvied to a T

and if you ever saw them coming you had better run away
better pray you can outrun them, else you'll rue to see the day
you would wish to only quickly die
and meet the makers hand
for Sinbad and his sailors were a curse to all the land

Their masthead was the tusk of a wild killer whale
They'd cut off all your fingers
and they'd send you home by mail

If you ever saw them coming it was probably too late
For Sinbad and his sailors weren't looking for a new first mate

Oh Sinbad and his men were a vile and vicious lot
in 30 years across the sea they never once got caught
it was in the year 2025 , just after world war 3
that Sinbad took a look around and said its time to set to sea

So Sailors take your notice
and maidens take your leave
better pray we not meet old sin bad
in the world that we achieve
