There was a time, looking through myself
Wanting to pretend
If I escaped, I could fill myself
I don't think you can
Been far and wide
But that hole inside
Never really leaves
When I went away, what I really left
Left behind was me

It's telling me
To be on my way home
Million miles away
I can't stay

Each passing day, every passing face
Seems like such a blur
I long to be
Home, silently
Lying next to her
Just to get back, by her side is all
All I need to be
Cause I went away
But what I really left
Left behind was me

I need to be
Getting on my way home
A million miles away
Million miles away
I can't take

    General Commentlack originality? listen to Jennifer Lost the War and then listen to any song from Conspiracy. two different sounds, yet so closely related. takes originality to create two different sounds to call unique to yourself and then make them so closely the same. takes a whole lot of originality, something those orange county boys obviously have. i think people who say they are loseing their toutch are too closed minded to realize the truth. they are a force to be on earth for quite a while, ever changing every day, creating their sound to call their own.

    General CommentThis is it. This is the band, this is one of the songs that changed my prespective on the music world forever. It's basically about not knowing who you are or what you about. Trying to find your place in a crazy mixed up world, where everything is so far out of reach (million miles away)

I was at a battle of the bands with my 5 best pals when this song was played we were all standing in a wee circle and it flet there was nohing around us it felt like we werw a million miles away from everyone and everything! this song reminds me of such a happy time and to be thankful for brilliant friend who i would want to be away with!!

    General CommentI've heard a theory that this is a continuation of kind of a "trilogy" of songs: Gone Away, End of the Line, and this one. It makes sense, kind of a loss, coping, not knowing yourself anymore, but still needing to move on.
