On another world
By another star
At another place and time
In another state of consciousness
In another state of mind

Everything was almost perfect
Everything fell into place
The jury reached a different verdict
Before the judge dismissed the case

In a parallel universe
That's happening right now
Things between us must be worse
But it's hard to see just how

And everything could have been perfect
Everything in the right place
Then I wouldn't have to play the suspect
Accused, abandoned, and disgraced

I didn't shoot
I didn't pull the trigger
It wasn't me
I'm just a plain and simple singer
I heard the sound
I turned my head around
To watch our love shot down

In another lonely universe
We're laying side by side
And no one's hurt
And no one's cursed
And no one needs to hide

And everything is almost perfect
Everything is almost right
There are never any conflicts
There are never any fights

    Definitely seems to be another song about Martin's divorce, wishing things could go back to the way they were. As well, it could be intepreted worldly... Martin wishing for world peace ("no conflicts", "no fights").
