Lyrics

We're passing by
Just ships in the night
Never turning on a lantern or a light
After all this time your violet eyes are still
Burned into my mind

So plant your flowers deep out in space
And watch them bloom for all the human race
Drag me down to earth, I need to touch base
I feel surreal and out of place

Lyrics continue below...

It's been so long since I've seen a familiar face
It gets so lonely up here in outer space
I feel so wrong fitting in yet being out of place
Maybe I'll drift 'til I shift into another state

And don't you dare relapse
You've fallen into fiction with science at your back

We're passing by
Just ships in the night
Never turning on a lantern or a light
After all this time your violet eyes are still
Burned into my mind

Now all I've seen will come to be
But it is still yet to pass us by
Now count your sheep and go to sleep
It's time to say goodnight

I'm afraid that if I step out into the sun
(Time to say goodnight)
I will fade, disintegrate and I'll become no one
(Time to say goodnight)
Into another state
Oh, another state

We're passing by
Just ships in the night
Never turning on a lantern or a light
After all this time your violet eyes are still
Burned into my mind

Look in between all that's seen and unseen
Let your body oscillate uncontrollably
So iridescent, what a vibrant gleam
My eyes dilate deep into eternity

I've grown numb to the sound of the city and the cars
I wish we could go back to how it was before
I travelled far away and deep into the north
Oh, son don't wander, no
Stay your course

Oh, son don't wander
No, stay your course

For you I'd tear the moon out of the sky
Oceans will swell and the seas will run dry
Water is falling up into the night
But gravity is like a tide
Weightlessness is on our side

We're passing by
Just ships in the night
Never turning on a lantern or a light
After all this time your violet eyes are still
Burned into my mind.
