lyrics

Falling through space, what a day
what would you say
once the capsule's busted anyway
Please don't look up I swear you'll know something's wrong with the sky
A helmet's glint oh why, do I tell myself these lies.

But we'll never get far enough with the old ways
The pattern is burnt and we can't put it back
No, we'll never get far enough with the old ways.

Take a swim through a cold cruel, map spiraling
as old familiar blue is racing away, do you rue the day
you said it meant more to travel than to stay
oh, it's so beautiful
can't your heart somehow hear me say

But we'll never get far enough with the old ways
The pattern is burnt and we can't put it back
No, we'll never get far enough with the old ways.

So fall into night on the back of a bird
So silent its wings not a sound can be heard
but my eyes are too wide and my vision is blurred
but we don't fight..

as every familiar thing winks out of sight
instead is replaced by bright bands of light
I close my eyes and somehow you're still waiting
