lyrics

There's a mountain watching from the mist
Orange grass surrounded, deep in the distance
White dots on the landscape wandering lazily
Winding roads arising, calling out to me

Oh, and there's an ocean raging in the heat
Technicolor greenery, air so sticky-sweet
Crystal blue-black water brings the lightest breeze
Climbing waves arising, calling out to me

In my bones I know the stories told are just for show
To create in us a fear of the unknown
And soon the dark horizon glows
Suddenly sunrise

There's a city upon a yellow hill
Golden light surrounded, well-dressed people mill
Sunrise floods the rooftops, shadows stretch aligned
Oh and it's a city that one day I will find

In my bones I know the stories told are just for show
To burn in us a fear of the unknown
Before long the dark horizon glows
Suddenly sunrise

We've been convinced by the myth that the world is small
We need the interest and nerve to discover it all

In my bones I know the stories told are just for show
To burn in us a fear of the unknown
Before long the dark horizon glows
Suddenly sunrise
