"Gone To Earth" as written by and Andrew Kenny....
Worlds on end
Seen through
A rocket window screen
Millions left to roam
Engines burn
Beautiful and bright
Always bring me home

If galaxies
Are places you've
Never been too far
Suns will fade
Both blind and lead the way
Home where you are

Away away
Away away

The receiver
In my rocket ship
Always stays in tune
To the right waveband
In galaxies unknown
Further suns in bloom

Away away...

    General CommentThis song is "On My Way." Whoever submitted these had the titles all mixed up.

    General Commentactually, timothyreal you are partially right. these are the lyrics to "on my way" on the fun of watching fireworks. this is also known as "gone to earth" on the through the 90s. there are two different names for this song... and two "on my way"s.

    General CommentThe lyrics as of this posting are the correct ones for Gone to Earth. I first heard American Analog Set when I heard this song on somafm.com's Indie Pop Rocks station.

    General CommentThese lyrics are actually for the song "On My Way", and are not quite right for the "Gone To Earth" song heard on the CD Know By Heart. The Know By Heart version omits the second verse here and the "Away, away" bits.

    Both are great.

    General CommentThe lyrics certainly don't match the "On My Way" that is on The Fun of Watching Fireworks. The clip of the Know By Heart version of "Gone To Earth" on iTunes seems to match these lyrics, but I can't tell if it is missing the parts you mention.

    General CommentI am completely obsessed with this song at the moment. It is just so perfect.

    General CommentI-Man. Present and aware. A true clear channel of rhythm and information. Radio-head. Dialed in.
