I WROTE THIS SONG: Lost At Sea is a family story about my great uncle who was on a submarine in WW2 and after a night of heavy drinking on leave in Australia, got left behind by the sub that took off without him which incidentally and tragically was never heard from again. It chronicles his dealing with this insane circumstance and the survivor’s guilt that went along with it.
