about

When Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 27 set off on his expedition to be the first to traverse the Antarctic little did he know they would really be testing the limits of the human spirit under very different circumstances.

Likewise here in New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy we have banded together in helping each other out. Some are gathering and distributing cloths, food and blankets while others clear downed trees, mend wires and patch roofs.

This song of mine "Arctica" was written with my father as a inspriational tale of what is possible "when we're all in this together".

I am joining forces with my friends over at www.rebuildrecover.org and donating all the money from this song to them and their efforts. They are a well organized group of individuals and I urge you to donate more, if you are able, over on their website.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Wanted men for a hazardous adventure
Bitter cold and oh the darkness at the bottom of the world
No safe return your wages can't be squandered
But honor and glory if by fate we do succeed

And were all in this together
No one makes it out alone
By endurance we will conquer
When we reach the shores of home

A day away almost to destination
The ice rose fast freezing to our hull
For 15 months we watched her slowly sinking
Our leaders strength its sure to save us all

And were all in this together
No one makes it out alone
By endurance we will conquer
When we reach the shores of home

Our hopes were high in such a dire situation
Its one in all and all for one clinging to the glory
But bigger still weve seen the naked soul of man
I will not rest until every sailor's safely home

And were all in this together
No one makes it out alone
By endurance we will conquer
When we reach the shores of home
