LET IT BURN
Music & Lyrics by Jeremy Hoop and Rachel Koller
© 2015 Opus Meridian Records & Rachel Koller

on the bough, peering out
at shores of a strange new land
what fearsome beasts and cannibals
wait beyond the burning sand
this wild frontier, what horrors told
were none who didn’t hear of it
what could mere boys do when faced &
frozen with the fear of it

hear the captain cry
you’ve Thrown the jonah’s overboard
you’ve tamed the siren song
Davy Jones won’t take your bones
this red sky morn will end ere long

take your will by the bootstraps boys,
you’ll be victors by and by
but should your courage bend & buckle
you’ve no choice but fight or die

set fire to the mainsail, let it burn
this is the point of no return

played at pirate long ago
dreamed of lands of gold
gotta a weary woman & little ones
four, two and six years old
in a promised land of stress and strain
& mouths to feed & a woman’s need
what’s a man to do when all he sees
are bad men gain and good men bleed
take a swig, shut the eyes
double back to that siren song
fill up the cup of that pirate boy
so simple to not be strong

but dreams of sailing wild and free
face reality and harsh consequence
won’t do to them what daddy did to me
and lose lives in the wake of my self-defense

set fire to the mainsail, let it burn
this is the point of no return

there’s a buccaneer call in every heart
will you stand in your place or fall apart
will you throw in the towel or wipe up the mess
will you find the strength and dare to profess
no matter how seeming the hour is late, no matter how deeply dug the hole
I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul

set fire to the mainsail, let it burn
this is the point of no return
set fire to the mainsail, let it burn
this is the point of no return
