about

There were a couple of years where I really lost my way. First I dealt with cancer, then when life seemed to be getting back on track, there was a reorganization at work. I was moved into a new department with a new boss, and everything changed. I was encouraged to do things I wasn't entirely comfortable with, and in the process alienated people I considered friends. Oddly enough, at the time it seemed like the right thing to do. It taught me a couple of valuable lessons - be cautious around charismatic leaders, and always stay true to yourself. The good news was that I persevered, outlasted the folks that made me uncomfortable, and eventually found my way back. Along the way, I really did feel lost, but found help from others in the same boat.

lyrics

I strayed from the mainland
and now I'm lost at sea
I thought if I sailed into uncharted waters
the uncertainty would set me free

but one time friendly faces
now seem to all deny me
I lost my tether to the shore
I don't know if I can do this anymore

rescue me
won't you rescue me

I thought I was all alone
but there's another boat floating past
seems there's two ships of fools out here on their own
and neither one is bound to last

there's a storm front moving in
the waves are climbing so high
the sky is black and there's nowhere to run
but I'm not the only one who's out here looking for someone to

rescue me
won't you rescue me
