The smartest men, they built a rocket
Aimed it at a target far, far, far away
But by the time they knew they lost it
It was a long way, was a long way, was a long way
We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way off

The smartest men, they saw a world with
Corners and endings far, far, far away
But when they drew it out and searched it
They were a long way, were a long way, were a long way
We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way

We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way
We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way off

The erudite composed a thesis
Everything we see is all, all, all there is
But as an apophatic mystic
We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way
We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way off

We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way
We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way
We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way
We’re a long way, we’re a long way, we’re a long way off

When the waves of time wash the shores stark clean
of the memories, the last of me
With my castles gone to the constant sea
Would you stay with me?
Stay with me
