I’m truly sorry if I am
Loosing my grip
If I’m fading away
Watching the stars as I set sail
I’m truly sorry if I was
A disappointment to you
But I cannot stay
Watching the stars
Longing to set sail
I know that I will miss you
But it’s time for me to leave
The arcadia is calling my name

I am drifting away
This is my goodbye
No need for me to stay
This is my way out

I’m truly sorry if I am
Loosing my grip
If I’m fading away
Watching the stars as I set sail
I know that I will miss you
But it’s time for me to leave
The arcadia is calling my name

    My InterpretationWhat a great song!

    The lyrics could be taken literally as (gasp!) relationship gone wrong, but since the title already spells it out, this is more likely about leaving earth literally. Perhaps talking of the human race being forced to abandon earth after having made it inhospitable for life. Incidentally, Arcadia Planitia is an area on Mars, so perhaps the song muses about Mars being terraformed in the future for the event when earth is no longer viable for life.

    My InterpretationJust want to say thanks for posting these lyrics. Wonderful song. Sometimes I feel I am not from earth, for many reasons, but sometimes I look into the stars and dream of going home, to that Utopia I know I really come from. I couldn't possible come from a place like earth full of death, pain, corruption, evil sigh. Anyone who is living in an evolved state can agree feeling like this once before.
