lyrics

We said our goodbyes, to all the things that used to trouble us
And finally I got to feeling good about that,
But now they start to creep back in again.
Right here
Right now
You keep your eyes down, oh but we know
These things will worm back to our lives
So on we struggle
Won't turn away
And I'm not sure we'll run this time.

The idle day passed away
They lay on beaches bleached by the sun
On this hilltop,
Through the still night
Our eyes grow red and sore
A night at the Observatory

Into the infinite we fly
Beyond the moon and back in time
Back to the place we left behind
On all those nights with the television
Into the infinite we fly
Beyond the moon and back in time
Back to the place we left behind
Back to the place we left behind

Lost on the high street, drifted so far from our old lives
We shuffled 'round with our eyes tied to the ground
And now we watch another library close
It's a win
For the marketplace
When we were young, we dreamed of something beautiful,
It faded with routine
So on we struggle
Out on our own
But we can't run away this time

As the last rays of light
Take their leave of the town
While they sit there
Watch the wrong stars
Our eyes grow red and sore
When there's a life in the observatory!

The nights all alone
The nights with the mirror
The beauty before you
The knowledge of sinners
Away from the darkness
Of poor received wisdom
Away from the nights
When time just drags on and on...
