Voyager - Ghost Mile lyrics



Tracks



01. Ascension

Open eyes
The line of sight
Is clear in mind
Ascension
Covers pulled
One minute cloud the cold
The warmth deserves
A mention

You know it's far
You know it's far to go
You know it's not hard
You know it's not hard to uncover

We've been told to take the road
But that road is unprotected
And we are cold and we admit
We'd much rather be defectors

It's far to go
We've said it for too long
So far to fall
We're going it alone
Each day a saint
To make it through the core
No self-restraint
We're going it alone

Sunlight shine
And so I close my eyes
Sunlight's mine
And so I shut the blinds
Warmth from them
Prefer the warmth from within
High hopes dream
And so I fall asleep

So I fall asleep

It's far to go [4x]

It's far to go
We've said it for too long
So far to fall
We're going it alone
Each day a saint
To make it through the core
No self-restraint
We're going it alone

02. Misery Is Only Company

Oh and I see and I know
And suddenly I'm on my own
But it's now and it's no
At least it isn't tomorrow

Suddenly
Sudden low
Sudden higher
And I know
That it's you
That it's me in misery's company

It's a ceremony
Of our serendipity
And you go and you know
And suddenly you take control

Suddenly
Sudden low
Sudden higher
And I know
That it's you
And misery's company

These intentions of yours are lost inside of the silent core
And so I'm standing here just waiting for more
And so I'm standing here just waiting for more
And so I've told you many times before
These intentions of me are lost inside of the silent seas
And misery is only company
And misery is only company

Suddenly
Sudden low
Suddenly
Sudden low
Suddenly I'm on my own

Oh and I know
And suddenly I'm on my own
But it's now and it's no
At least it isn't tomorrow

It's a ceremony
Of our serendipity
And you go and you know
And suddenly you take on

Only the morning the sky so clear and
I'm sorry that I have been so hard on my
Slowly decision-based morality
And so needy for an escape

These intentions of yours…
These intentions of yours…

These intentions of yours are lost inside of the silent core
And so I'm standing here just waiting for more
And so I'm standing here just waiting for more
And so I've told you many times before
These intentions of me are lost inside of the silent seas
And misery is only company
And misery is only company

03. Lifeline

Come feel at ease among the tired minds of the day
Fall onto your knees before the new horizon array
Set your only pace at what you need
At what you can and everybody can wait

'Cause it is always the same sun that shines

This, the modern dream, the modern life
The modern I and only I will decide, I will abide
Time date for the lifeline and a score and a sign
And I saw all the lights flash straight in your eyes

But it is always the same sun that shines
And it is always the same sun that shines
And it is…

So demure
Among the southern skies
It's the tide, it's the warmth
It's the final paradise

And it is always the same sun that shines [3x]

04. The Fragile Serene

Don't tell a soul
Keep on the low
They'll never know
That we're not from here

Try not to sigh
We're on the line
Where we are now is the fragile serene

The secret life
The secret soul
Two worlds apart
Two worlds to grow
It's easy for the one who tried
Still easy when you say it right

…to sedate
Aim to elate
Don't scratch the door
That was open before

Hold on tight
Don't let them see the bare
Scars of mine
And hide the cracks in the
Perfect life
Avert the stare of the
Ceiling light
Until it burns my eyes

Until the sunlight burns our eyes
Until the sunlight burns our eyes
Until the sunlight burns our eyes
Until the morning we'll survive

Until the daylight breaks the night
Until the morning we'll survive on silence and we run for miles
And we exchange the secrets
And the senses burn before our eyes

Until the sunlight burns our eyes
Until the sunlight burns our eyes
Until the sunlight burns our eyes
Until the morning we'll survive

05. To The Riverside

Only
Take the one and only
Walk the familiar line
Only one final time

Slowly
Easy to unfold me
Take it up so easily
Is this what you see?

Take me down to the riverside
Take me down and step aside
Take me down to the riverside
Let me drown a little while
Let me drown
Drown a little while

06. Ghost Mile

I get that sense that when we look around
This is gonna be less than easy
I get so tense when we are falling in
And it won't be a solid landing
Oh, no! We are the only ones around
Well, that we know of now
Oh? Did we just walk the golden mile
With our heads held high?

[2x]
Gently
Forward on empty
March in a straight line
In a confined mind

And we walking the ghost mile
To war!
And we are walking the long stretch home
And we are sinking the first smile
To war!
And we are drowning the norm

This is the death of me
This is the death of me
This is the death of me
This is the constantly

[2x]
Gently
Forward on empty
March in a straight line
In a confined mind

07. What A Wonderful Day

Here I go again
Here I forget
It's time to bring all your fears
It is time for regrets

Wake up and smell the pain
In every moment it bleeds the same
Or is this something I've always known
To be too far away?

And so I think to myself
What a wonderful
Tell myself
What a wonderful
Force myself
What a wonderful day

Here we go again
Smile and pretend
It's time to be friendly, happy
It's time to be friends

Oh, wake up and feel the rain
I know it's going to taste the same
Or is this something I've always known
To be just out of reach?

And so I think to myself
What a wonderful
Tell myself
What a wonderful
Force myself
What a wonderful day

What a wonderful day
What a wonderful day

And so I think to myself
What a wonderful
Tell myself
What a wonderful
Force myself
What a wonderful day

08. Disconnected

Beneath the fragrance
Insipid agents
Above the waters
Misleading portals
There's no policing
Apparent reason
Supposed musing
We're all just losing

Joined, you are connected
Yearning affection
Yet disaffected
By division starting to unfold

Better secession
It is the fashion
Of the nation to excision of itself again

Birds of a feather
Stand on the tether
Morning has broken
And they have spoken too soon

Take a hand
And sit and wait for the years of our unity to dissipate
And I sit and I watch the crowd rule over me
And I rot to the core while they devour me
And I sit and I wait…

[3x]
You are so in time that we're sometimes disconnected
When you fall in line you offend the disaffected

Disconnected
It's a sign of my obsession
You are so…
You are so…

Beneath the fragrance
Insipid agents
Above the waters
Misleading portals
There's no policing
Apparent reason
Supposed musing
We're all just losing

09. This Gentle Earth (1981)

One night
On this gentle Earth
One night
For this nightmare search
So I'm born into a softened life
And the dreamers keep the dream alive

One night
In a bright-eyed haze
One night
In a warm embrace
So I'm searching for a trial by fire
And the dreamers keep the dark alive

[2x]
And I have never seen this side of me
And I have never been so beside of me
And I have never felt so alien
And oh I know it's meant to be

And I know…
And I know…
And I know…

This time
I will talk the line
This time
I will say it's right
We are born into a softened life
And we take it in our stride

[2x]
And I have never seen this side of me
And I have never been so beside of me
And I have never felt so alien

[2x]
And I have never felt
And I have never felt
And I have never felt so alien
And I have never felt
And I have never felt
And I have never felt so alien
So alien

So alien
So alien

10. As The City Takes The Night

Hey, you over there in instant daylight
Oh, won't you start the bleed?
Oh no, you're not aware of the twilight?
Just make sure you don't leave anything for me

Mind the stifling breeze
So long, too long, too long, along aside
And you don't forget to breathe
So long, too long, too long, along aside
Focus on the lights
The one, the one, the one, the wonder
As the city takes the night
We run, we run, we run, we run through the night

710 too late increase the margin of our sacred morning
It's the dawning of a mindfulnessless decimal affair
As the saying goes this all goes without saying or a warning
And the promise of less comfort is the dawn above the stairs

Mind the stifling breeze
So long, too long, too long, along aside
And you don't forget to breathe
So long, too long, too long, along aside
Focus on the lights
The one, the one, the one, the wonder
As the city takes the night
We run, we run, we run, we run through the night

Mind the stifling breeze
And you don't forget to breathe
Focus on the lights
The one, the one, the one, the wonder
As the city takes the night
We run, we run, we run, we run through the night

[2x]
As the city takes the night
We run, we run, we run, we run through the night
