"Reach" as written by Tommy Stewart, Pete Murray, Neil Matthew Godfrey and John L. Fahnestock....
I run away
But never have to go far
'Cause I know where I'll be (living in my head)
Far away from everything

You'll never reach me
Never see me
Sinking any lower
You'll never reach me
Never see me
And that's what makes me happy

Up here again
I always win
'Cause I know a way
'Cause I know a place (living in my head)
Far away from everything

You'll never reach me
Never see me
Sinking any lower
You'll never reach me
Never see me
And that's what makes me happy

All around me
I've heard empty faces
Speaking empty words

You'll never reach me
Never see me
Sinking any lower
You'll never reach me
Never see me
And that's what makes me happy

    General CommentI think this one's pretty obvious.

    The speaker's talking about how they get away from the things in life that bother them by escaping into their head.

    "I run away
    But never have to go far
    Cuz I know where I'll be (living in my head)
    Far away from everything"

    They go on to suggest that in their head they can affect the outcome of the difficult things that they're going through and modify reality.

    "Up here again
    I always win
    Cuz I know a way
    Cuz I know a place (living in my head)
    Far away from everything"

    All in all, it's a really cool song that speaks about the escapism we all experience in a way that we all can relate to. The song writing is really catchy and this one will be "living in your head" for a while. Sorry for the pun.

    My OpinionCouldn't have said it better. I totally agree with exnihilo. One of their best songs, too, in my opinion.
