Some says your dreams are a distant road
Down which our hearts would like to go
But I have always stayed in place
Under that old illusion that is safe

You said the ship in port is the safer one
But it's not the reason it was made
So forgive me if I wander off
And forgive me more if I just stay

Sing another song for the lost ones
We're the ones who need it the most
Every time you run it'll cost ya'
But it doesn't stop us runnin'

If a coward dies a thousand times
Then there's a graveyard in my head
'Cause it took me years to say the words
That you denied even need said

Sing another song for the lost ones
We're the ones who need it the most
Nothin' that you fear is forgotten
It follows you around like

Then everything danced to a stranger tune
And we found our song and we found our truth
And now that we know it's that we always knew
Farewell to the chains we were born into

And as we danced among the ashes of our arms
We laughed it off
And then we burned our tiny world to find the ocean
Just beyond those paper walls
