4 stars The lyrics to "Send Him Seaworthy" are amazingly good and I think it represents an homage from Kavus to Cardiacs' Tim Smith, recalling the night Tim was attacked in 2008 and never recovered from the effects of the stroke and heart attack he suffered. [Verse 1] Most set sail in a usual way And always stand to reason, never set themselves ablaze Our proud galleon that sets sail today Just dwarfs the other vessels, cuts through the waves

[Verse 2] Clocked a trawler at eleven knots It was nothing to write home about, all that stuff I said Was true, I really mean that I just can't face up to what's happening with you here Now that you're half-dead [Chorus] In a half-life My sweet captain's sailin' away from me In a dungeon All that beauty locked in a cell with he

[Verse 3] Enlisted men hit the waves again I can't adjust the rudder ? man overboard! I never knew you'd capsize, my friend I said you were my brother, I thought you'd be restored

[Chorus] In a half-life My sweet captain's sailin' away from me [?] so hard to reach you This mutiny shipwrecked and beached you In a dungeon All that beauty locked in a cell with he

[Post-Chorus] Our wondrous voyages seem like a dream to me Since all our dreams were plunged into this fitful sea

[Bridge] In my dreams still You're just like you were, you're just fine In my waking You are never out of my mind

On the telephone at four AM You said you wanted to stay It came as no surprise 'Cause you were always that way

I made up your bed, I went back to mine Yeah I drifted, but then When you never showed, how could I have known You'd never show up again?

[Outro] Show up again Show up again, dear friend, oh Show up again
