I moved out west to the house where I spent my childhoods' first few years.
The city don't treat me well these days and it shows,
Through the lines on my face and the bags I carry under my eyes.
I found comfort in change and the clear air of the countryside.

And I've tried, tried my best to change my ways.
And I've hoped, hoped it would bring better days.
But the thoughts in my mind, they never felt more than okay.
Yeah the thoughts in my mind, they never felt more than okay.

I went 6000 miles through 8 different time zones to the other side of the globe,
Where the words that they spoke were so far from my native tongue
Here the streets overflow and the flashing lights scrambled my mind
And the change in the time, just makes my sleeping harder to find.

And I've tried, tried my best to change my ways.
And I've hoped, hoped it would bring better days.
But the thoughts in my mind never felt more than okay.
Yeah the thoughts in my mind, they never felt more than okay.

In all of my years I've never been so far from home,
My surroundings will change but I can't help from feeling alone.
No, I can't help from feeling alone.
No, I can't help from feeling alone.
No, I can't help from feeling alone.
No, I can't help from feeling alone.

And I've tried, tried my best to change my ways.
And I've hoped, hoped it would bring better days.
But the thoughts in my mind never felt more than okay.
Yeah the thoughts in my mind, they never felt more than okay.

    General Comment(James Veck-Gilodi)

    This song is about:
    Everything and nothing at the same time. I wrote this song in so many segments its mainly about places,Living in England and travelling to visiting Japan.

    Mainly though the song covers the simple fact that no matter where you are in the world or who you are with,If you feel alone or low or basically, any negative felling/emotion. You still somehow feel so disconnected from everything.
