"To The End Of the Earth" as written by Timothy James Rice-oxley, Tom Chaplin, Richard David Hughes and James Keith Warnock Sanger....
Down in the old town
When my mind was wandering
Round empty hallways
When will I be one again?
You're just, making it harder for yourself
Making it easy for everyone else
Making it easy for me

In the old time
You'll never be in and you get never get out
You learn from the family
You'll never be in and you get never get out
To run to the end of the earth

Under the archways
Where my mind is wallowing
Down to the country
Where I will be well again
You're just, making it harder for yourself
Making it easy for everyone else
Making it easy for me

In the old time
You'll never be in and you get never get out
You learn from the family
You'll never be in and you get never get out
To run to the end of the earth
To the end of the earth and run
To the end of the earth

Build me a home underground
Free from light and sound
Build me a home in the air
I will run, to the end, to the end
To the end of the earth
And run, to the end, to the end
To the end of the earth
And run, to the end of the earth

    General CommentWow. To The End Of The Earth is one of my all-time favorite songs. There isn't an easy message to detect in this song, but it is beautiful and has been a great inspiration to me. At times, I am reminded of Snow Patrol's Run. Very good song.

    General CommentWow, this song should've been on an album, not just a b-side. It's meaning is difficult though.

    I think the song is about times when you're on your own, and no one seems to be on your side. You just don't fit, yet you can't quite run away. "You'll never be in and you'll never get out". You just want to run to the end of the Earth, because it seems like you have nothing better to do. Maybe you're looking for something, maybe someone.

    The end of the song reminds me of "Atlantic"

    "Build me a home underground
    Free from light and sound"

    "I need a place
    that's buried in the deep"

    Both songs express a wish for a place where you can be self sufficient, and cut off from the rest of the world. We've all felt like we need a place of our own at one time or another, it's something everyone can relate to.
