Absolutely no idea what this is, it just came out.
I suppose I could say it's about depression, though it was not initially my intention to write on that subject.
I was thinking of incorporating the old Saxon poem "The Horse and the Rider" (think that's what it's called) into a song somehow, and then the bit about shadows on oceans and blah came to mind, and... I decided to add a bit to it.
Anyway, I'd say I quite like it, but I'm tired and eversoslightly drunk at the moment (good old Burns' night. I'm not even Scottish, but I thank that nation for giving me a reason to have a celebratory drink or...seven) and so am not best placed to judge.
