Sitting on the train, staring at the empty seat in front of me
Beneath a golden sky, cities roll on by and I can’t get no sleep
When I’m alone sometimes, I try to understand
What things have meaning?
And I despise myself, for being such a fake
My mind goes on for miles and miles
And miles and miles...

Sail away, with the sea as my engine
And the stars as my guide
Sailing to the other side (x2)

On a starry night, walking home in silence while the city sleeps
I try to do what’s right, but something in my nature’s trying to ruin me
I look out to the sea, a thousand just like me
Needing direction
Just floating out of sight, into the failing light
As if it’s just the way my life is meant to be

Sail away, with the sea as my engine
And the stars as my guide
Sailing to the other side

I’m setting sail, to the other side (x3)
I’m setting sail...

The sun goes down and I smile but it’s just pretend
Our summer is about to end
And I don’t know if its gonna be alright...
Everyone’s down and my town, it’s in decay
We’re wasting our lives away
And I don’t know if its gonna be alright
