You spotted the ocean
At the head of the trail
Where are we going?
So far away
Somebody told me
That this is the place
Where everything's better
And everythings safe

(chorus)
Walk on the Ocean
Step on the stones
Flesh becomes water
Bone becomes Foam

Half an hour later
We packed up our things
Said we'd send letters
And all those little things
We knew we were lying
They smiled just the same
Seemed that already forgotten we came

Chorus X2

Back at the homestead
Where the air makes you choke
People don't know you
And trust is a joke
Don't even have pictures
Just memories to hold
That grow sweeter each season
As we slowly grow old!
