The sun rose in the year of 1769
If you looked up you’d have seen a ship out at sea
With a masthead like never seen
It was clear they were not from these seas
they were sailing on a ship called Endeavour

Six months travelling to their dreamland
Or so it’s been told
Trees full of flowers and the golden sand
Gradient of every degree
And no, this is not what they came to see
Most were seeking rewards for their endeavours

Step out, it makes your heart burn,
How flames scorched the land
Like creatures tearing up what remained
But who can say it would have been better
Or it would have been the same
Without the sailing of the Endeavour


from Here by the Fire, released February 10, 2011
Andy Laking: guitar and vocals
Gerry Paul: additional guitar
