Walt Grace's Submarine Test, January 1967

Walt Grace, desperately hating his old place
Dreamed to discover a new space
And buried himself alive
Inside his basement, tongue on the side of his face meant
He's working away on displacement
And what it would take to survive

Cause when you're done with this world
You know the next is up to you

And his wife told his kids he was crazy
And his friends said he'd fail if he tried
But with a will to work hard, and a library card
He took a homemade, fan-blade, one-man submarine ride

That morning, the sea was mad and I mean it
Waves as big as he'd seen it
Deep in his dreams at home
From dry land, he rolled it over to wet sand
Closed the hatch up with one hand
And pedaled off alone

Cause when you're done with this world
You know the next is up to you

And for once in his life, it was quiet
As he learned how to turn in the tide
And the sky was aflare when he came up for air
In his homemade, fan-blade, one-man submarine ride

One evening, when weeks had passed since his leaving
The call she'd planned on receiving
Finally made it home
She accepted the news she'd never expected
The operator connected
A call from Tokyo

Cause when you're done with this world
You know the next is up to you

Now his friends bring him up when they're drinking
At the bar with his name on the side
And they smile when they can
As they speak of the man
Who took a homemade, fan-blade, one-man submarine ride

Teste do Submarino de Walt Grace, Janeiro de 1967

Walt Grace, odiando desesperadamente seu velho lar
Sonhava em descobrir um novo espaço
E enterrou-se vivo
Dentro de seu porão, língua de lado em seu rosto significava
Que ele estava trabalhando em deslocamentos
E no que seria necessário para sobreviver

Porque quando você se cansou desse mundo
Você sabe que o próximo depende de você

E sua esposa disse a seus filhos que ele era louco
E seus amigos disseram que ele falharia se tentasse
Mas com vontade de trabalhar duro e um cartão de biblioteca
Ele viajou em um submarino caseiro, com lâmina de ventilador, feito por um homem só

Naquela manhã, o mar estava bravo e eu não estou brincando
Ondas tão grandes quanto as que ele tinha visto
Em seus sonhos profundos em casa
Da terra seca, ele o empurrou até a areia molhada
Fechou a escotilha com uma mão
E pedalou sozinho

Porque quando você se cansou desse mundo
Você sabe que o próximo depende de você

E, pela primeira vez em sua vida, estava silencioso
Enquanto ele aprendia como virar na maré
E o céu estava açoitante quando ele subiu para tomar ar
Em sua viagem de submarino caseiro, com lâmina de ventilador, feito por um homem só

Uma noite, quando semanas haviam se passado desde sua partida
A ligação que ela esperava receber
Finalmente chegou em casa
Ela aceitou a notícia que nunca esperou
O operador conectou
Uma chamada vinda de Tóquio

Porque quando você se cansou desse mundo
Você sabe que o próximo depende de você

Agora seus amigos falam dele quando estão bebendo
No bar que tem o seu nome na lateral
E eles sorriem quando podem
Enquanto falam do homem
Que viajou em em um submarino caseiro, com lâmina de ventilador, feito por um homem só
