1. Astoria

From the recording Pageantry


Have you ever felt the way, the way we live Astoria we never wanted more?
We will not break down
Trading rain for sunny days, fishing boats and sailor jokes and lost at sea for days
We will not break

I wanna dream you to Astoria,
mouth of the Columbia
The waves will drown out all the sound

Fading moonlight in the streets, 5am the boats leaving marina still asleep
They will not break down
Fisher Poets write the truth, we almost capsized and west winds almost sunk us too
We will not break
At the end of every day, the way the sun sets on the coast you'll never want for more
We will not break down
Have you ever felt the air? Saltwater is in the wind and blowing onto shore
We will not break
