lyrics

The cops came by this morning
Things didn't go as planned
The panic in their eyes -
Can't say I was surprised
The answers to their questions
I knew but didn't say
How could it all go wrong?
It's what you wanted all along

You were the young explorer
With stars stuck to your eyes
Charts upon your wall
What could I do but fall?
Into the great experiment
The Manifest Design
The journey of a lifetime
Of leaving me behind

What was he wearing?
How can they still not be beyond caring?
His final seconds, captured -
In my mind like a broken record:

The house we built is growing smaller in the distance
I see it through your eyes
(so small behind you)
Earth below you, growing smaller in the distance
I see it through your eyes
The small bright light you left behind

I only follow in my dreams
In this room of grand machines
I don't leave the bed we made
Block out the sun, pull all the shades
Fuck the stardom and the stars
The points and stares from passing cars
I'll take the ground over the skies
Ten more years of seeing through your eyes

Our inspiration, carried away!
By the hopes of a nation
His final seconds, captured -
In my mind like a broken record

And all the love and adoration in the world
Was not enough to bring you home
To make this feel like home
