Track Name: Transmissions
So far away
So far away
So far away
So far away
Track Name: Space
I am flying
Through outer space going
To open these closed doors
I'm far away so far away

Mistakes and waiting
Are day to day, are day to day
Too far from color
I'm far away so far away

Farther and farther
I'm stuck in space, still stuck in space
Searching for new land
I'm a ship at sea a ship at sea

I feel I am floating
I feel I am floating
On the waves

So far away
So far away
So far away

Track Name: New World
I see, I see a new world coming fast
Past the mountains
And oceans,
The beginnings and the ends

I found, I found two trails leading west
I chose the right one, not the left
I can't say I've tried my best

I'm grounded where I stand
A forested homeland
But there's something that I lack
That's holding me back

So I'll keep my old friends
Keep listening to 'The Bends'
I prayed to God and asked him where I'll go


I see, I see a new world coming fast
Past the mountains
And oceans,
But I don't want to begin

I'm grounded where I stand
A forested homeland
But there's something that I lack
That's holding me back

So I'll keep my old friends
Keep listening to 'The Bends'
I prayed to God and asked him where I'll go

I think I'll stay here
I think I'll stay here
I think I'll stay here
I think I'll stay here
I think I'll stay here
I think I'll stay here
Track Name: Lighthouse
Rough waters bring me farther away from you
And the waves are crashing into me

I saw a lighthouse shining too far away
I saw the hope I had leave all of me

I am shipwrecked and I don't think I'll survive
I am shipwrecked and I want you by my side
Oh tonight I can't fly
Oh tonight I will try

So lonely, all these friends are just rocks washed up from sea
Worlds away all these words arrive oh so late

I saw a lighthouse shining too far away
I saw the hope I had leave all of me

I'm shipwrecked and I don't think I'll survive
I'm shipwrecked and I want you by my side
Oh tonight I can't fly
Oh tonight I will try

Oh tonight I will fly
Oh tonight I will die
Track Name: Legal Documents
Dreading the days that would come
When the mail arrives
Sifting through papers to find
The legal documents

Feeling your throat drop into
Your uneasy stomach
So many lines to sign
To take half your life away

Losing years of your life
In a paragraph
Losing years of your life
And you can't look back

You call her again on the phone
To change her mind
She dodges your questions again
To keep you from why
You said "I never lied"

Leaving the phone off the hook
So time passes by
She says she was sorry she left
For love that was light
She said you were not right

Losing years of your life
In a paragraph
Losing years of your life
And you can't look back

You were afraid of changing
The time had arrived and you wasted
You were afraid of changing
The time had arrived and you wasted

Losing years of your life
In a paragraph
Losing years of your life
And you can't look back
Track Name: Winter Nights
It's getting colder out
The roads are so slippery
And they won't get better
But the snow is so pretty

Long drives west till I see you
But I don't mind the wait
I see roads signs they're saying that
I am so close don't break down

You hope that I will stay
For all time this winter
But I know that I'll be gone
For some time not forever though

Short nights spent by your side
I see you the sun has gone down
I said, "I can't stay forever but
I could be home, but I'll stay"
Track Name: Bare Feet
I'm walking miles down roads
with my bare feet
The Sun's beating down on me
I cannot see
Stepping on rocks
That want to trip me as I go
Losing my patience
I must get off this road

I can see branches they're falling off
I'm getting colder I think I am lost
All that I've done was for nothing at all
(Has all that I've done been for nothing at all)
I can't take away all that is wrong
I so sorry

I need a map
So I can have some control
I saw a stone
That still was unknown
So I pushed it over
Regarding what I was told
Losing my patience
I must get off this road
(I must get home)

The wind is picking up
I am getting lost
The storm is getting rough
My hands are losing hold of me
Track Name: Distance
I've noticed that I don't miss you
And I hope that you feel the same
Cos I know that the pain does last
So don't hold on to the past

I wanted your heart
But the distance brought the changes
Every two weeks wasn't enough
But I could never say it to you

If it was the summer would it be different
I don't think so cos it's been two years
Our lives point in different directions
And the time had pulled us apart

I wanted your heart
But the distance brought the changes
Two weeks wasn't enough
But I could never say it to you
Track Name: Closer
I was on the ocean
Far from the sun

I was still eroding
The binding was undone

Still, I stayed in the waters
Falling apart

Cos I was just a stranger
Blind from the light

I'll move in closer
I'll make my way to the Sun
I feel it's warmer
I thought all good had been gone

I've been feeling lost
I cannot escape from the sea
Cos I've been out of luck
And I don't think I'll ever leave

I've been feeling lost
I cannot escape from the sea
Cos I've been out of luck
And I don't think I'll ever leave

I opened pages
I pulled them out one by one
I was falling backwards
And nothing could have been done

I'll move in closer
I'll make my way to the Sun
I feel it's warmer
I thought all good had been gone


I've been feeling lost
I've been feeling lost
I've been feeling lost
I've been feeling lost
I've been feeling lost
I've been feeling lost

I'll move in closer
I'll make my way to the Sun
I feel it's warmer
I thought all good had been gone
