lyrics

He saw the world in black and white
There was wrong and there was right
Spoon-fed half-truths and easy lies
So convicted, so sure
Turns out he was what they despised

Now everything looks grey
With shades of blue and red
His worlds turned upside down
From church pew to a strangers bed
Searching for a comfort, a refuge
From the voices in his head

Just look to the stars
You’re not a rock in the dust, but a light in the sky
So look to the stars
That’s what you are

She doesn’t know how she got here
How it all disappeared
Good deeds are forgotten, but
They’ll always remember the fall
So she packs her bags and makes the call

Now everything looks grey
With shades of red and blue
Her worlds turned upside down
Wish I could do something for you
Can’t shine if you’re staring at the ground
Look up, not around

The vast expanse, the final frontier
The freedom to imagine, an escape from fear
To live in a dream
Things are never quiet as bad as they seem
