lyrics

Mountain ranges silhouette into the sun, I'll set foot in my home again
Leaving everything behind was all I had in mind to let my life begin
Let the details disappear it's not as if you could see them anyway
All this depth was nothing more than background in the theatres that you escaped

Change my name, erase my person, hide amongst this empty space and never leave
This mask it sets out to belong, like sharpened flint, the sparks jump from their necks like fleas
Those that think they're puppeteers are paper dolls, their lives will be torn to shreds
While seeing less than silhouettes of mountain ranges, I'll set foot in my home again

Judge myself and those around me, morals serve their purpose in the roles we play
Ridden of materials, I wouldn't care to exist any other way
Finding company in scripted characters, I've made home in the books I've read
Why do my folks need me to help them burn the bridges in the lives they've led?

I'll be going back to where I belong, footloose bound by freedom
To hear the ancient song of my planet as I greet her
I'll be needing shelter for the night
When I return into the wild

(I've always wanted to discover the deep end, cos this life's too shallow)

Watch a river flow and it changes direction, upstream
I never really wanted to fit in
I'm strong, but I don't need power
Born free, but I never had a place to go
Another notch in my belt, boy, I'm wasting away
Cast out, the snow's always the envy of summer
Every jumped without falling back down
What's the use of the air if I have no one to share with

I'm in my favourite place
This little bus is the home I've made
I'm in my favourite place
Calling everything by its real name
I'm in my favourite place
This magic bus is the home I've made
My final resting place
I wouldn't care to have it any other way
